Can I include a card attachment in butler-triggered email?

We frequently attach materials to our cards that need to be reviewed by people outside our Trello team. I know I can have Butler email them with a card button, but I can't figure out how to have Butler include the attachment in the email. I've put my script below, and I appreciate any ideas!


(It's a card button so when triggered) send an email notification to "my@email" with subject "{cardname} Review" and message "Hi! Attached is an item for {cardname} for your review. Please let me know your thoughts.\n\nAttachment:\n\n{attachmentlink}"


I've tried {cardattachment}, {attachmentlink}, and {$attachmentlink}, but I'm basically just trying whatever I can think of and hoping it works.

Hey Meredith,

The trouble is when those attachment variables will be valid. The {attachmentlink} variable will only populate a link if Butler knows which attachment to reference. So instead you would need to create a Butler rule that detects when the attachment is added, then send the email.

A card button unfortunately won't work for what you're looking to do, unfortunately! I will let our team know you'd like to see a variable that references the attachment links on a card at all times though.

Hope that helps explain!
