Butler - Is it possible to add a card to the list where the trigger happened ?

Hello There,


I want to do my action in the trigger's list.

For example, on date add on a particular card in a list, I want a card created in the current list.

In the butler I can chose a particular list, but not the current one where the action happened. Is there a way to do this ?


Thanks !

I am not sure what trigger you are explaining but I think I know how to get around the list problem. There is a function in Butler where if you use {*} where you could type a name of something it stores it as a variable and can later be referred to as {wildcard1}. 

The rule below performs the action you are looking for I am just unclear about what trigger you are wanting to use.

when a due date is set on a card in list "{*}", create a new card with title "This is the new card" in list "{wildcard1}"

Hope this helps

Thanks for you answer, indeed it helps. 

I checked the documentation about butler variables and it contains everything I need, I just didn't know this documentation existed.


Thanks !
