Indicate what value from the mail should be assign to the custom field




I'm creating Trello card by the mail and I want to set Custom field with values from this mail.

For example, my custom field is "Version" and it's dropdown with values 1-5.

My mail content can be like "I was working with version 3, but (...).". How should I indicate this "3" in the mail that Trello will know this values is the Version?


And if you can help me with other little thing. I set the label according to your guide, but I have no idea how can I set the label which has 2 words, e.g. "Mobile App"

@Patryk Domański 

You definitely can use email to set a card which acts as a trigger. By using {*) you can pick up the version either from the card name and/or description but I would imagine this to be predefined for you to get good hits rather than random email formats. Try it.

Thanks! That was really easy, don't know how can I missed that before.

I used format "{*}---{*}---{*}" and set triggers:

description -> {wildcard1}

customField1 -> {wildcard2}

customField2 -> {wildcard3}

and sent a mail with the same format, thanks!


Can you help me with this second case - labels?

@Patryk Domański 

For labels , it will be on the subject line of the email : something #labelname

@milynnus Yep I know, but when I have label composed of 2 words, the label is not set.

When I'm trying like you said "test title #web", my title is "test title" and the label is "web".

When I'm trying "test title #web app", label is empty and title is also "test title #web app"

@Patryk Domański 

I think it will be connected with a _. There is some documentation on this. 

@milynnus dude I love you! Very fast responses with working solutions, thanks a lot! You made my day :-)
