I have a board created as a template. It is being re-used for multiple projects, multiple teams. I want to replace the string that identifies project-specific info in the title of cards on the board.
Example: Board 1 cards say "project 1 - task xxxxxx", "project 1 - task yyyyyyy", etc.
I want to copy the board, and rename it to Board 2, and replace the text "project 1" with "project 2", so the result is that the cards say "project 2 - task xxxxxx", "project 2 - task yyyyyyy", etc.
Trello doesn't have existing functionality to find and replace text, however you can use Butlerbot to accomplish this task.
Once you copy your board, add Butlerbot and use the command
for each card with a name containing "project 1", replace the matched text with "project 2"
This will work well particularly will a smaller number of tasks that Butler needs to automate, as there are some limitations
Give that a go, I think you'll find that command very useful, and may even have it do some things you never thought possible :)
thanks Matthew - I did give it a try. Unfortunately the limits are pretty significant for the no-cost version, but the functionality does exactly what I wanted. It was a bit buried in the misc menu, and it was a function at the board level, instead of the card level (which was at first not intuitive to me, but it made sense after I realized the app logical structure). I found the function and set up the find and replace - it worked like a charm. If that was the only power up I wanted to use, it may not have been worth the investment - I'm using for a 2 month engagement with a client team. Cost/benefit not strong enough. However, we're going to use a few more tools, so am investing for 2 mo's for the team. Really liked the IFTTT nature of Butler. Super easy to use. Thank you for finding it for me.
