Flashy/celebratory notification when a card is archived or weekly archived summary?

I would assume Cards represent pretty significant tasks/milestones for many people like they often do for me. This might seem like a trivial aesthetic for some but I think it would actually greatly help my day to day work momentum if Trello cards did something other than fade in the ether when we are done with them. Something just a little bit more flashy, perhaps with an audio noise, that symbolizes the accomplishment of something for an extra hit of dopamine. The screen/background could flash different colors. The card itself instead fading out has an animation like an old email program where it flies off the screen to tuck itself away in the archive list. Completely optional of course.

I don't really see a way to do this with "watch" or the automations. Is there a power up that might accomplish this? 

A compliment or an alternative to this would be if an automation could send a summary of all cards archived/completed at the end of each week in an email.

I'd set up something like this:


Add 🎉 into your list name for some celebration action, then set up a automation rule to archive your cards automatically after a while.

See for some info around that.

Wow! That's almost exactly what I was thinking about with confetti and everything. Where would I actually find the party bugle emoji if I wanted to keep a saved list of options that can go into names? I copied it from the video link and it worked fine, but I'm assuming there's other emojis that might cause different reactions? Doesn't look like its under stickers.

There's a few emoji that trigger the confetti; right now it's all confetti though, no other effects supported to my knowledge 😅

Your operating system (Windows or Mac OS X, most likely) has a way to open an emoji picker.

On Mac the keyboard shortcut is "Control + Command + Space Bar", on Windows it's "Windows Key + ; (semicolon)" or "Windows Key + . (dot)".

Pretty useful generally, if you like using emoji in comments or email!

Thank you again so much! I wasn't expecting such an exact solution for what I wanted.
