Butler commands for renaming a list using custom fields.

I am trying to rename a list using a Custom Field.

The command I am trying to use is "move all the cards in list "Ready for Release" to list "Archive: Sprint #" on board "SCS Website Sprint: Archive", and rename list "Archive: Sprint #" to "Archive: Sprint # {{%Sprint #}}"

This does not work.  Does anyone have any other idea for creating lists with incremental numbering?

@Beth_Maxwell I think you'll find the issue is that because you're using "move all cards" there's no single card in scope to read the variable value from, so you'd need to look up a card, but there's no find/lookup action in board buttons.

One option that might work would be to have the current sprint number in your Ready for Release list, and do something like:

move all the cards in list "Ready for Release #{*}" to list "Archive: Sprint #{wildcard1}" on board "SCS Website Sprint: Archive"

I *think* that it will just create the list if it doesn't exist, then you just need to update your sprint number in your release list name each new sprint. You could try automating that also by doing something like:

when a card is moved to list "Ready for Release #{*}" rename the list to "Ready for Release #{{%Sprint #}}" so that the list name automatically inherits the sprint number from any card you move into it.
