How to copy card for each member?

I have a Trello board where I add a card in the 'To Do' column and assign the card to 4 members.

All 4 members complete the same task individually, and when all 4 have done it one of them move it to 'Ready for Review' column.

After 'Ready for Review', a reviewer needs to review each members work and move it to 'Done'.

Is there any way I assign each card to 4 of in 'To Do' but once its in 'Ready for Review' I can create 4 copies of a card - 1 for each member?

Lets say, there is a card in 'To Do'

1) Card title: 'Write an article' 
Members: Alex, Beth, Chuck, Dan.

All members have completed the task and moved the card to 'Ready for Review'. There I press some button and do something - that's what I want to know - which creates 4 cards like this:

1) Card title: 'Write an article' 
Members: Alex

2) Card title: 'Write an article' 
Members: Beth

3) Card title: 'Write an article' 
Members: Chuck

4) Card title: 'Write an article' 
Members: Dan

along with all comments and details.

Hey there!

I could see a Butler automation working well for this use case!

Check out for more Butler inspiration!

  • For a card button, you could define it so that:
    • when the button is clicked, the card is copied to a specified list with comments (optional: link to the original card)
    • And on the newly created card copy, add a member in turn from the card xXexamplecardurlxX to the card (for this part, you’d need to have a card, perhaps a static template card, on the board that all 4 users are consistently a member of so that Butler can rotate the newly copied card assignment between each user on the static card.)

With this type of Butler card button, each time you press the card button on the 'Write an article' card, a new copy of this card is created and the next member is added to the card.

Give it a test run and see if this fits your workflow!
