Email to create cards with Due date and colour label

What would be the email format to create a card in a list that shows a label colour, due date and any other custom fields?

2 answers

Yep, I've already read this page, but it does not explain properly how to do it.

Should I type in the subject:


xxxx #red

xxx #labelred

How exactly should be the format of the subject line?

@Vantage_Production the format for label colour is like this:

Here is the subject #green

you can assign a member like:

Here is the subject #green @iaindooley 

However if you want date or any other custom fields etc. you'll need to use Butler, for example to set a value on a custom field you could do something like this:

This would mean you could email things like:

Do this thing @iaindooley #green next Monday 

and the card would be set due next Monday, assigned to iaindooley, and get the green label added.
