Is there a way to turn off the "via Butler" attribute after an automation has been carried out?

I am a frequent user of Butler for automating various tasks on my Trello boards. While the automation is greatly useful, I've noticed that every time an automation is carried out, a "via Butler" attribute is attached to the activity.

While I understand that this attribute helps to distinguish between manual user actions and automated actions, for my particular use case, it would be more helpful to have a cleaner activity log without the "via Butler" annotation. It can sometimes distract from the key information I want to see in my logs.

Is there currently a way to disable or turn off the "via Butler" attribute that appears after an automation has been carried out?

There is no way of turning it off but top tip from me.  Create a new Trello account (call it "[companyname]bot" or something similar and transfer your automations to that account.  The benefits are:

  • As a solution to your issue, this makes it a bit cleaner and clearer to differentiate between automation and manual activity
  • It moves from a per-user automation to a per-board automation philosophy
  • It opens up the possibility to use the "by anyone except me" attribute for automations, which makes it possible to do some cool things...

Is there an easy way to transfer the automations? 

Or do I have to replicate them?

Yes, you can easily do that by adding the commands to a library and sharing with the workspace.  See the guide below:
