How to count how many cards move from list x to list y during a date range? Edited


I'm using Trello as an editorial calendar.


Here's the basic workflow that's relevant to my question:

1. The editor moves cards from submitted to finished. This indicates an article's complete and ready to publish.

2. The person who publishes articles moves cards from finished to a list called published


What I'd like to do is count the following each week:

  • how many cards move from submitted list to the finished list each week as that indicates how many articles the writers completed.
  • how many articles move between the finished list to the published list as that's how many articles were published each week.


Any ideas on how to automate tracking this as it's pretty tedious to count by hand. This seems like something that'd be perfect for automation.


Ideally, the result of this would be x articles completed this week (i..e., moved from submitted to finished) and y articles published this week (i.e.., moved from finished to published).

@MarmotSome Trello Power-Ups offer burndown charts.  These charts are quite similar to the statistics you describe, so I would just try them.  for example Corello:

Thanks @marc. I actually implemented something with an app called Butler but it's kind of a lot of logic to count cards so an easier way such as burndown sounds better for this particular problem. Thank you!
