Is there a way to automate cover colors?

When I add a colored label to a card, I'd like to have the corresponding cover color added to the card. Is there a way to make this automated so I don't have to manually change it every time?

Hi Ashley,

Right now, card cover automation isn’t available within Butler, but we're tracking the demand for it! I’ll pass your interest in this on to our team for consideration—let me know if there's any additional info you'd like for me to send their way.

If you're curious about how our team decides on what requests we work on, this article gives some insight into that process: We've also published a blog post with more detailed and visual information here:

If you'd like to see our latest features and releases you can take a look at our dev board at Our mobile boards are available at and

Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns, and have a productive day! 

I am interested in this as well.

I'd also love to be able to automate cover color selection in Butler. Note that I don't want the label color applied -- I want to be able to specify which color is applied when I set up the Butler workflow.

I'd like to be able to do this too.

Any idea if this will happen anytime soon?

Absolutely interested in access to automating cover color to help organize the board.

I would like this feature added to Butler as well.  Changing Card Cover colors would be most excellent workflow addition :-)

I'm also looking for this automation. Working on a team board, so want the possibility to have card change colour depending on who it is assigned to. Will make monitoring a team board much easier for all participants. 

Please add this.

I found this post because I was looking for this automation too. It would be great to be able to change or assign card cover colors automatically when you move a card to another list.
