Is there a way to get label activity on a specific card on Trello Board

We use Trello Boards to track order production. We use labels as flags. We get activity time/user on each card but it does not include when/who added labels. Also looking for sort functions by labels.

For sorting, you can use Butler to make a Card Button. Under the Sort tab there's a Sort the list by label command, never played with that but it looks like you can manually order specific labels as well as just by colour. As well as tack on a secondary sorting as well.

As for labels, Butler may also be a solution.. but make sure to check that the number of times someone adds/removes a label (even by accident) per month is below your subscription level's Quota before going forward.

You can make a Butler rule that triggers off of a label being added, and you can either add that info at the bottom of the card description by using "{carddescription}/n{username} added the label {labelname} on {time} {datenumber}", or add it as a comment (just remove the {carddescription}/n bit of the above)

Sort tab does not offer sorting list by label commands.  Pretty much just sorts by date created, due date and name.  Is this something I can add?


Butler - already using our powerups, but that sounds like a great way of doing it.

@Christine Sandsness according to the documentation here:

the addLabelToCard action is supposed to be an included item in the nested action types resource so you should be able to do this in your browser:

replacing "VsUv8PtK" with the actual short ID of the card BUT ... you can't. For some reason neither add nor remove label from card actions are showing up. You might get more mileage asking about that on the developer community:

So it looks like the only way to get this info currently as @Vongsawat mentioned is to use a "when label added to card" trigger (or API webhook notification) to record that information somewhere else (like in a comment on the card or in a Google Sheet).
