How do I add text to a report - Butler

Figured out how to create an empty email (not the goal LOL). How can I make the report contain all the cards on one list, including the text in their checklists?


Thank you so much!

@Lauri Pantos I don't think Butler reporting will get you a list of checklists, but this Trellinator function will loop through all cards in a board, and print out the card name/link as well as all checklists and checklist items for each card as plain text you can easily copy:

You can run that using our BenkoBot platform:

In order to easily run it, you can click this link to preview the code:

Once you enter your API key/token you will need to change "My Board" and "My List" to reflect the name of your actual board and list you want to report on, then you store it and run it, and you'll get a chunk of text in the log with the report you want.

You might be missing the action to pull the actual report into the body of the email. Try adding the report variable to the message of the email like so:

You can include any variable include a report variable which is the common use of it. The challenge you are going to face is the checklist items.
