Is it possible to create a "smart" Workspace View based on List names?

We use the same List names on each board we create for a new project, e.g. Backlog, In Process, Blocked, Complete. 

Is it possible to setup a "smart" Workspace View that it automatically shows cards filtered by List names that match a rule like "contains: backlog"? 

The ultimate goal is to have a View that automatically picks up cards in new boards with the same common List names we always use. 

So far I've only been able to create a View where you manually select each List from each Board that you want included. As a result, new Boards are missed out until they are added. 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hey @Zach Anthony - I'm a bit confused on what the 'smart' aspect would be. Can you describe exactly what you're looking for? 

Are you looking for a view that automatically is created, or automatically brings in new boards? We don't offer both of those options, and definitely don't offer the latter as there's a limit on the number of boards that can be added to a view. 

Hi Alex, I’m looking for a view that always includes cards from Lists called “Backlog” on any Board that exists. 

The goal is that if I create a new Board with this List, it will get picked up automatically, without me having to manually add the Lists from that Board to the View. 

Hi @Alex Waite just wondering if you had any update on my reply above?
