How to have Butler send report only when not blank

I have a Calendar Command in Butler that sends a report of cards in a list. It works, but I would like it to only send the message when $report is not blank.

every day at 4:00 pm, create a report with all cards in list "Do Today", and post message "Trello cards due today: {$report}" to Slack channel "..." in workspace "..." as Butler

This is meant to be a reminder for outstanding tasks, so getting a blank report is just noise. I looked for ways to count cards prior to doing the actions or to check the value of $report before sending, but no luck. How can I add logic to only send if $report is not blank?

Hi Csilla,

Unfortunately at the moment there isn't a way for Butler to detect when there are no cards in the list. Therefore  the report will always be sent regardless as to the condition of the list.

I'll pass this onto the Butler team to see if this is functionality that can be added in the future.



Has there been any update to this?
