Can I add a Butler rule by text rather than UI?

The UI of adding Butler rules is a little cumbersome, and seeing as rules are displayed in this text format, could there not be a way of writing/pasting a raw command in?

@Chris Astles this is exactly how Butler Bot used to work before it was acquired and turned into a power up. It had a lot more features too. If you want a more direct "coding" style of creating butler-like automations, you might like the Trellinator framework I created, which you can read about here:

We recently released a platform to run your automations without having to set up via Google Apps Script here:

Hi @Chris Astles Thanks for reaching out on the community! Unfortunately it's not possible to write rules in the same way shown in that string. I agree that this would be really handy as an advanced feature. I'll pass on your suggestion to our Product teams!
