Hello, we're tidying up and standardising all of our boards, to do this I need to add a power up to all of our boards at once. I'm also wanting to standardise all the labels on our boards at once, and group our Butler tasks then deploy them to specific sets of boards.
I can't seem to find a way to do this other than doing it one board at a time -we have over 50 boards, is there anyway I can mass update them?!
Thanks in advance,
@Soph McCormack-Gow The short answer is that no, you can't do this with Trello natively however you can do it via the API.
For the powerups requirement something like the following Trelllinator code would do it:
For the standardise labels requirement, something like the following would do it:
NB: THIS IS POTENTIALLY DESTRUCTIVE! You should test this out using an account that doesn't have access to all your boards to ensure it's working as expected because otherwise you might find labels deleted that you didn't intend to
You can run these code snippets in BenkoBot here:
The issue of distributing your Butler commands across multiple boards is something that can't be resolved using the API. The Trellinator framework does, however, allow you to have global command groups so for example you could add those 50 boards to the same global command group and then have them all inherit the same functionality.
I created Trellinator as a replacement for Butler Bot commands that I had developed for my clients, you can read more about it here:
I kind of picks up where Butler leaves off in a lot of ways in terms of the sophistication of automation you can implement, but it's a coding tool. You can use both Butler and Trellinator in conjunction, and often Butler is useful for prototyping functionality that you may eventually code using Trellinator. Butler is also useful for allowing people to create their own automations without having to go through a coder to get things done.
So the two compliment each other, and there are definitely limitations to each.
