Butler automation based on checkbox duration Edited

We have the butler and custom fields power ups.

We have created a custom field called 'waiting' which is a checkbox.

We want to have the following automation rule.


If checkbox 'waiting' has been checked for X days, send an email to all assignee's of the card. Is this possible?

Basically we want to action if the checkbox has been checked for a specified period. This would have nothing to do with due dates. It's all about making sure our technicians do not forget about their cards that are waiting.

There is currently no action that can verify if a checkbox has been checked for a certain amount of time.

I recommend to either set up a feature request for Butler, or try to find another way that could send off such notification.
