I use Trello for personal tasks only. Can I automatically assign all cards to myself?

I use Trello to organize everything outside of work. All my boards are just for me. Assigning myself to every card I create is cumbersome and adds unnecessary info/bulk to each card.

Is there a way to set my boards to apply to “Just Me” beyond the existing privacy settings?

Hello @Julie Parham 

Add an automation rule that adds you as a member of every card that is created on the board. Add that rule to all the boards you want that to happen on.

@Julie Parham what's your motivation for adding yourself to every card?

There are various functions within the app that I believe would be helpful but require card assignment. Specifically, I’d like to be able to utilize the “My Cards” tab and sort by due date.

My issue pre-Trello was having multiple to-do lists floating around and no way to prioritize between them all. I now have the same problem but with lots of handy features.

@Julie Parham you might like this article I wrote on task prioritisation in Trello:

when you need a separate board just paste the link to that board into a card title on your main board, that way your main board is your “my tasks” list, the bulk of your tasks are on that board and any other boards are off shoots from it.
