How can I prevent a label from being removed from a card?

Hi again,

This time I need help with enforcing the captioned rule, i.e. if a label is removed from a card, such that the card is now bereft of any labels, then that label should be automatically re-added to the card.

Really need help with this one as I am not seeing anywhere I can use the {cardlabelcount} as a check condition for any trigger.


Best Regards

Hi Dane,

I think the only way you'd be able to do this is to create an individual rule for each label, that applies to all cards with certain criteria (e.g. sit in a certain list), for example:


Ok, I'll try that.

No worries Dane, if that works for you, make sure to mark my answer as the accepted answer so other users know this works. 

Well, I tried the approach, and it works partially. The only problem is that it is a bit too general, such that, even when there are multiple labels on the card it is still re-adding the one I removed. I want it to only re-add if it is the ONLY label on the card.

Thank you for the effort though, I believe it is a steer in the right direction.


Best Regards
