I feel like I'm missing a really simple rule but can't figure it out! I have a board for weekly tasks and I want to set a Butler rule that states every Sun night at 23:45 all the checklists on the board are unchecked.
It seems I have to go into every single card individually! Surely there's an option for this isn't there?
@Roxy_Rhodes There is no longer a way to loop through all cards in a board and reset all checklists, but you could, for example, have one rule that says:
When all checklists in a card are complete set the due date to 23:45 this Sunday
Then a second rule that says:
The moment a card is due, reset all checklists on the card
An alternative to a Butler rule approach would be to enable the card repeater power-up and repeat a new card (the whole card, including a 'fresh' unticked checklist) every Monday morning or whatever.
This way you can perhaps keep the last weeks card as a record if you want by moving it to a journal list or board for example but start the new one afresh each Monday.
You could also split out any unchecked items on it into a card of it's own for the coming week if something still needed attention.
I keep a few cards in a specific list at the far end of a board as the 'base' cards. You can then configure and edit them as necessary but have the fresh one repeat into a list and repeat time of your choosing from it, while leaving the original base card safe.
Oh good... Thank you!
I'm only just exploring Butler myself but maybe it may be easier to carry on with the repeater generating a fresh card but have Butler, instead of resetting existing lists to zero, clean sweep/archive the list/board entirely at your specified time and let repeater fill in the new ones for you.
Another way strikes me, which I think is available now, is to save a whole 'Weekly Tasks' template board, cards included, then just create a new board from that every week.
None of which is what your question actually asked and you might have done already... ;)
