How to automate Butler Board Buttons

I made Board Button. But I have to mannually start this button (sorting cards on due date in a list) manually each time. Is it possible to run this x time per dau automattically?

As @Iain Dooley rightfully said, you can set up a Rule with the Butler Power-Up to have this executed automatically.

But you do not necessarily need a paid account for setting up Rules. You only need a paid account, if you exceed your monthly quota. - Admittedly, with a free account you would be quite limited.

Here's an overview of Butler's quotas with the different accounts in Trello.

@Katrin Anger oh right did they change that? I could have sworn when the power up was initially released I didn't have access to recurring triggers on the free plan ... anyway thanks for correcting

@Iain Dooley 

Card Buttons, Board Buttons and Rules can be created with a free account.

But Due Date and Calendar commands are only available in any of the paid accounts.

Hi @Iain Dooley and @Katrin Anger ,


Thank you for you response. I have a trello gold account. 


Thanks to you i solved it by using the calender function (instead of Board Buttons or Rules). Thank you!

Let the sorting begin!

every day at 07:00 am, sort the cards in list "Te doen" by due date ascending

@Ward Luitjes you can do this by creating a recurring rule, but you need to have a paid Trello account to get access to those in Butler.
