Is there any way to automate the renaming of a card to itself without the intro word?

If I have a card named "Test 123" and I wanted to automate it being renamed to "123" when it detects the word "Test", how would I do that? The only options I seem to have are {cardname} which is for appending, but I want to detatch something from the title. Is this possible?

See https://help.trello.com/article/1156-pattern-matching-and-wildcards

You could do this with a rule like:

when a card with a name starting with "Test {*}" is added to the board, rename the card to "{cardnamewildcard1}"

That works perfectly, thank you so much!

This convention you are using

{cardnamewildcard1}  

 Is it new? Does it mean that if I can used wildcard in subsequent actions / different criteria of the trigger (can’t think of an example} and I am able to use them downstream?

Hey @milynnus - the field based wildcard references are not new, but I noticed they weren't documented - I just updated the docs here to include a little info about them: https://help.trello.com/article/1156-pattern-matching-and-wildcards

@Felix 

Thanks. I remember a few times I had wanted to use a wildcard in a second part of a command but realised that Trello would not be able to distinguish which wildcard1 I wanted. This is the answer to that challenge.
