Card Repeater Doesn't Work

Hi! I am about an hour into Trello and want to figure out how to repeat tasks. I enabled  the Repeater, but when I added it, the "Save" button was not operational ( I wasn't able to click on it. Then I tried clickingn "Repeat" on the Board and it says "It Looks Like Something Went Wrong. So I looked that up and they said try it in a different browser, so I did that. Then I restarted, but nothing changed. Please help if you can. I want to use Trello for my business, but don't understand why I can't get this seemingly simple task. And it could absolutely be "user error." Thank you!!

@Julia Fister and @Jonathan Pate welcome to the community! Did you have specific days checked? If you don't select specific days the "save" button won't be enabled. 

I just tried it and looks like its working at the moment, but perhaps it was down earlier? I think I saw some notification about Trello being down/boards being unavailable for some users earlier. Let me know if it's still not working. 

Also, I personally prefer to use Butler/Trello automation for repeating cards. I feel like it gives me a little more control over it and I can adjust the rule more easily and customize what the card should look like!

If you want to do card repeating in Butler, just head to Automation (top menu of your board) --> Rules --> Calendar (on the left side menu) --> Create Command (blue button in top right).

From there, set your trigger, by clicking "add trigger". This is the frequency you want the card to show up (every day? ever work day? every Wednesday?)


Click the blue plus button to add it, and then select the Add Card option. You can specify which list you want it to be created in, any checklists dates, or labels you want it to have, etc. 

Let me know if that helps!

Thank you, that helps! It did fix itself, it might have been part of the bug yesterday!

Yes same for me! Question does it not allow you to save?
