How do I determine which member enabled each Power-up in my boards?


I have 3 team members in most of my personal boards, all are myself: my personal gmail account ID, my current work account ID (through SSO), and a syncbot ID I created on gmail to help with workflow automation. When comes to counting Power-ups, I ended up being limited to 5, assuming 3 were granted to my work account ID because member of an Enterprise pilot (never-ending it seems), 1 for my bot ID and 1 for my personal ID. I've decided to stop relying solely on my employer to give these nice privileges and I got a Gold membership for my personal ID, hoping to own 3+1 Power-ups personally (the +1 is by my syncbot). But now, how do I know which Power-ups are counted against my work ID? versus my Personal ID versus my Bot IDs?

Determining who is the enabler of the Power up for a particular board would help us strategize better which member to upgrade and who can remain on a free plan, as well as integrate this better (securely) with the business side of our life as it evolves. By the way I'm not considering upgrading my personal team to a Business class as that would mean paying 3 or 4 times the 10USD/month for my family (unclear if I would be charged for my work ID membership in my personal teams, but I think it'd be at least 3 times for my personal ID, syncbot ID and my wife ID).

This would also help transition efforts to carry over the power from a work ID to a personal ID where it should reside in my opinion, life being the constant / ultimate priority while work may change overtime.... Questions like which critical Power-ups would I need to disable under my work ID, and re-enable under my personal ID? and would I loose contents if I did so (such as Repeats, Mirrors, and of course Custom fields...)?

Well this ends up to be a heavy post, possibly having more ramifications that I initially thought of.... Please help with the topic question first and foremost, and if there is community traction in debating beyond the question, let me know and we could open another question on work-life integration, or work-personal life support with Trello.

@Jeremy Michel  If I understand Trello correctly, it works like this:  The status of the owner of the board determines the number of Power-Ups you can use.

As an example, when you use your (paid) work account to create a board, you can add as many Power-Ups as you like.  However if you create a personal board with your personal (free) account, you can't have more than three.

Hope this helps.

Mark, I thought about this more thanks to your comment.... I put it to the test.

I created a board under my personal ID (so I own it) and was able to add 3 Power-up max. I invited my work ID (as a board member only, not an admin) and logged on the board with that work ID, then I was able to add more than 3 more Power-ups (I tried 4 only).... So the max number of Power-ups by board seems to be the sum of the max number of Power-up put by each member on the table, whatever the extent of their admin rights. So 3 from my personal Gold plan, and it seems unlimited from my Enterprise plan...

That seems to imply that Trello checks who is adding the Power-Up, and that would mean a Enterprise user could as many Power-Ups as they like to a board which is owned by a Free user.
