Calendar Rules & Custom Fields

Hi there, 

I have set up a rule to send an email to a specific custom field (filled with different email addresses for every card) every Monday at a certain time. This rule and the custom field variable {{%fieldName}} works for due date rules, but it is not working for calendar rules. Error: "no email address to send to"

Is there a workaround for this?

The reason is that a calendar command has no card associated with it. Try a find or collect card and iterate to see if it works. 

Thanks @milynnus you are right. But the calendar rules don't actually allow you to select cards? Or I couldn't find this function for calendar rules on butler. If you know a way around this, let me know. TIA. 

@Aline Majado 

You are right in your observation.

I had a workaround where I converted a report variable into a checklist and iterate through them to send that email via a second command.

Alternatively, use http request to handle this for you.

Thanks @milynnus ! I will try that.
