Card Button: Copy the "Description" of one card and post as a comment on another linked card.


I'm currently using Custom Fields - because I'm not sure of another way to do this.

Again, I'm just trying to create a Card Button that will mark the Due Date Complete and then Copy the Description into a Custom Field - Find the First Linked Card (or for every linked Card) in the attachment - Post "that" Description into the Comments section.

I'm working on the Linked Card (the "Child Card"???). And my Card Button command, currently looks like this.


I'm getting errors. I also tried to copy the Custom Field value of the Child Card to the Parent Card with no success. This was my working command.


I'm pretty sure I"m doing something wrong. Trying to understand it from these examples with no success.

Hi @Bryan Dumaguina 

You might want to try this, this doesn't use Custom Fields at all:

If you wanted to post the card description in a Custom Field (not sure why, but if that's what you're doing at the moment, you probably have a reason!). I would do something like this:

Hello Esme,

Thank you very much for responding! First solution worked! Didn't think about the Comment route - and the {triggercarddescription} variable! That was a clean solution.

And thank you for the other solutions - they will come in handy for my other endeavors.
