Butler report in board button


I am trying to create a report which has all the cards in the various list with a certain label, i don't seem to be able to add the action of emailing this report, as that functionality is only available for paid subscription. The button i create seems to have generated the list, i do not know however how can i retrieve this list, can you please help me?

Thank you,

@tereza_lachmaniucu if you're following the instructions to create a report here:

then you'll see that it has this line:

create a report in variable "Doing"

then later when sending an email, it uses that variable like this:


So have you tried, instead of sending an email, doing something like:

create a card in list "Latest Report" and set the description to "{$Doing}"

@tereza_lachmaniucu yes unless you have a paid plan you can't send the email notification but you can still put the report variable somewhere, for example you can create a new card with the description containing your report:

Thank you!!!

I was able to get a card with all what i needed, it won't help me that much because i need more detail. I will have to go pay for the plan.
