Cards

Hi Would anyone know if there is any way to have custom cards i use a pdf form or a number of them for taking orders in our printing shop but it would be great to be able to create the form as a template and fill it in from the tablets as they take the order and save a double up

@Mike Carter you could use the Crmble powerup which has a Google Form and a TypeForm integration to automatically create Trello cards from a form. The problem is that it doesn't have custom fields yet. 

An alternative as @SGi Admin mentions would be to create a card from a Google Form submission by triggering a script on form submit using the API (or using Zapier for example).

Or, you could copy your Google Drive file when a new card is created, link it to the card then open it in Drive and fill in the form from there -- Google Drive (at least on iOS) actually has integrated form filling nowadays so it's pretty snappy.

Custom crmble fields are coming soon! 

@Mike Carter there are many Power Ups for forms which you can use. The advantage is that you get a working solution and quick time to value. The downside, in most cases, is that the data are easily and readily accessible since most will be kept as plugin data. Even with Trello API to get card.pluginData() you have to decipher it. Updating them programmatically is almost impossible.

The alternative option available would be to have your own form to feed Trello, storing the data in custom fields which you and Butler can have access...etc, etc. To can have Google Form to Google Sheet and have each row update trigger a card creation and populate the card correctly. 

Your approach would be equivalent to have a card with all the custom fields set up such that when you add a card, the fields becomes fields on a form. I have not come across a Power Up that open up the card like a FORM.
