I'd like to change the order of my Butler card buttons

I have just started using Butler and have created 7 card buttons in a template that I'll be using for each job.  These buttons will move the card to the next list on my board, but I have different members for each list and it's very important that the buttons are organized in the order I want them used in. 

However I didn't actually know which buttons I wanted at first (since I'm new) and didn't create the buttons in order of when I want them used.  I would like to reorganize them to reflect the steps they need to be used in.

I've searched the FAQ and don't find this topic.  Please help?

Hi @Dee Dee Dumond 

Welcome to the Community!

Card and board buttons are displayed in alphabetical order, to change the order, simply add numbers to the front of the button name! That means that they'll appear in the right order and you can re-arrange them whenever you need by changing the numbers.

Please let us know if that helps!

Esme :)

Thank you!!! I didn't notice that!

No worries at all @Dee Dee Dumond - I'm assuming it worked?

If it did, could you click 'accept answer' so that others who have the same question and search they know that this solution worked?

While this does work, once you get to 10 buttons the workaround fails since as stated items are sorted alphabetically so "10" comes after "1" and before "2".

Be nice if Trello would just let us drag and drop them in the order we want in the Butler interface and keep an internal sort order instead of relying on the button name for ordering.

Hi! you might try a system that usually works with files order etc., which is extending the number of digits in the name of all your files. this means that:


1, 2, 3 should become 01, 02, 03 

and they will naturally become "smaller" numbers than 10, 11, 12, since the first digit 0 is smaller than 1. It works up until 99.

Should you want more than a hundred dedicated butler buttons (LOL), you must add another digit to your system and make it


001, 002, 003, ..., 099, 100, 101, ..., 999 


and so on. I hope it helps :)
