How to find the next card in a list with Butler Power Up

I have my Done List on my main board. I also have several project boards that feed into the main board, as I'm usually working on multiple projects at any given time.

I would love to use the Butler PowerUp with the trigger "when card with {ProjectLable} is moved to the Done list on Main Board" and the action "Find next card in {ProjectList} on {CategoryBoard} and move to Incoming Tasks list on Planning Board." Text in brackets to vary given the specific project.

I could use due dates, but then project tasks build up and get pushed back and shoved into another list that is getting pretty unwieldy. I'd rather not use Command Builder/Butler Bot, since that's no longer supported.

If there isn't a way to use the PowerUp, is there a work around?

@Anne Louise Bannon when you say "next card" in this context, do you just mean the top card in the list that has the given label?

That is exactly what I mean. I tried linking cards as attachments in a chain, only that got messed up when I decided to change the order of the cards around.

@Anne Louise Bannon hmm the find and lookup actions in the Cascade tab don't seem to have any filtering options so you can't pick a card from a list. This Trellinator function would do it:

I think the real function would need some tweaks because I don't think you literally mean "Project Label" and "Project Board" and so on. You can read about Trellinator here:

https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Marketplace-Apps-Integrations/Introducing-Trellinator-Automate-Trello-with-Google-Apps-Script/ba-p/925271

Setting it up in Google Apps Script is a bit cumbersome, but I'm building a hosted version called BenkoBot, but it doesn't support "triggers" yet, only ad-hoc code execution, so for example you could test out just the "action" part using BenkoBot:

https://gist.github.com/iaindooley/5c430ca3fcdeb4c9e3696109b25f5bba

by running it here:

https://app.benkobot.com/

Although I still think that it would need some tweaking because I think that you actual board name isn't "Project Board" and actual label name isn't "Project Label" and so on

I was just using generic names because there is more than one project and more than one board involved. The Trellinator looks like fun, but I really don't have a lot of time to play around with it. That's why I was hoping there's an option within the Butler PowerUp, itself.

Thanks, anyway!

@Anne Louise Bannon cool well if you do want to go ahead with it I write this type of stuff for my clients, or you can just hire someone on upwork to do it, Trellinator is open source:
