Hi @Nick Traynor ,


you can give a try to Crmble Power-Up. It gives some Dashboard graphics that could be useful for you maybe.




@Nick Traynor 

Trello variables has the following info:

  • {cardcreationdate} the date the card was created.
  • {cardagedays} the age of a card in days, with two decimals (e.g. 1d 6h => 1.25).
  • {cardagehours} the age of a card in hours, with two decimals (e.g. 1h 40m => 1.67).
  • {cardageminutes} the age of a card in minutes, with two decimals (e.g. 1h 40m 30s => 100.5).

In my post "A Powerful Combination"

I illustrated how you can use the report variable with a http request to an end-point to do more processing on the data. You can use a pattern [{cardname}]({cardlink}) and {cardcreationdate} and send this to a spreadsheet or provide additional start/end date and time and have the end-point return some output to you like an email. 

It helps if you have the capabilities to support the endpoint including programs to implement your specific requirements. 

@Nick Traynor 

Create this

every day at 5:00 am, create a report in variable "card_age" with all cards with custom field "Basecamp" set using pattern "[{cardname}]({cardlink})^{cardcreationdate}^{cardagedays}", and post to url "" with payload "{\"report_variable\" : \"{$card_age}\"}"

the end point basically split the report variable into fields 

item_list = para['report_variable'].split("\n")
item_list.pop() #remove last element

sp_list = []
for item in item_list:
split_item = item.split("^")

and there is a script that update a google sheet (just one way to show the data)

CardCreated OnAge in Days
[Create card from unchecked checklist items and move to a list]( 16, 202083.35
[Create card from unchecked checklist items, append link and move card to list]( 16, 202083.31
[List unassigned member in board]( 30, 202068.52


Run a list ... when you make the first card of the week, if you are using the chrome extension Pro4Trello, it gives all cards a number, probably from the trello database ... just use maths ... saves you $4/mo too.

@Nick Traynor have you looked at the BlueCat reports powerup to see if it has what you need?

I had a look at the bluecat reports, but cant get past their pricing and signup screen, which on software turns me straight off ... if they cant tell me on the homepage or within one click, I'm not signing up to see what it does, however good I hope it might be.
