Butler Send last comment from card to another card

For now i figured out how to get the triggercarddescription to work, so i can comment it on another card, but is it possible to somehow get 'triggerlastcomment' (pseudo) ?

@Izet Ahmetagic hey there! what's the goal here? you've got a button that when you click it, you want it to get text from where and go to where?

This is basically what im doing now, but i would like the triggercarddescription to be the last comment from the trigger card, instead of description, but i can't get it to work :)

@Izet Ahmetagic if you can make the trigger to be when a comment is posted on a card, then you can use {commenttext}


But that has to have the comment in the trigger. I don't think there's any sort of mostrecentcomment field or anything like that for it to look for when you use a button. 

Instead, what i would do is try to restructure so it does this action when a comment is posted, and then use filters to be more selective about which comments it does that with.

Ew, alright, i wanted it as a button, as i want to only send when i post something specific.

 Thought it was possible, but thanks :)

You'd have to trigger your rule on when the comment is posted, in order to access the comment text. The variable "{commenttext}' is available on "when a comment is posted" type rules. See

I actually did create a rule which updates custom field "lastComment" which works, but somehow i can't get it to send to another card ?

i tried {triggerlastComment}, but it doesn't send the comment?



EDIT: Maybe i should have added that it's a button im trying to post the last comment from a card to another card 

@Felix Any new opinions on this?

I did try creating a custom field named "Lastcomment" and used {{%Lastcomment}} instead of {{triggercardDescription}}, it doesn't send anything :)
