How to restrict number of votes in Trello

I want to mix the [weekly-team-meetings Trello Board](https://trello.com/b/GDz7Wd53/weekly-team-meetings) with the voting aspect described in [LeanCoffee](http://agilecoffee.com/leancoffee/).

 

In order to do so, I enabled the [Voting Power-Up](https://help.trello.com/article/788-voting-on-cards). But I can't find a way to limit the number of votes a user can have per list (ex: being able to vote on only 3 topics per meeting). Another nice thing to do would be to multi vote (casting multiple vote points for a single topic), but I doubt this is supported.

 

Can you help me in that regard ? (For info, I'm on the free plan, and I'd rather stay that way for now, so I cannot combine multiple Power-Ups.)

@Joel Schaal I just tested this and you do get a webhook notification when someone votes on a card, so you could use the Trello HTTP API to "unvote" when a user votes more than 3 times. This would need to be a custom build, you wouldn't need a power up for it if you used a "bot" user, which you could create using the Trellinator Google Apps Script library:

So ... there exists a solution, depends how badly you want it though ;)

Thanks ! I don't mind spending a little time setting things up. 

I will test it to see how it works :-)

 

Have a great day,
Joël.
