Keeping a card with a specific label at the bottom of a list

Our Trello board has daily lists with multiple cards. I would like to have the one or two cards each day with a specific label, let's say "Watching," always at the bottom of the list, even when their card numbers are lower than those of cards added later, making "Watching" cards float to the top.

Here's a screenshot of what currently happens. I'd like "Watching" to always populate the bottom of the list.

@Pat Skerrett you can use Butler to sort lists by label:

when a card is added to list "{*}", sort the list by label green descending

I'm not sure how it handles cards with no label, maybe if you sort by label in descending order it will put the designated labels at the bottom of the list.

Thanks, Iain. That works for initially creating a card. But it doesn't seem to keep the card at the bottom as new ones are added.

Hi @Pat Skerrett 

Welcome to the community!

I think that Butler would do what you require, using either Board Buttons to manually do this, or Rules to do it automatically.

Thanks for the info, Liam.

I've been using Butler's to rules create cards for a while, including "move the card to the bottom of list" rule), but I can't for the life of me see a rule that will keep a card at the bottom of the list as others are added.

Hi Pat

The only thing I can think is that you can set the rule to run more often, or have a manual button to do it.

Not necessarily relevant, but are you aware that your label says 'warching' not 'watching'?

> you can set the rule to run more often

Thanks, Liam. How does one force a rule to run say once a day?
