Move card according to Labelcolour in Trello to unique board/list

I would like a way of applying conditional logic in moving a card based upon label colour (or custom field if this is not possible) to a board/list specific to the labelcolour.

I have searched high and low and cannot find a solution.


Please help!

Hey @Anthony 

I made a video tutorial for you on this. Hopefully I understood the question correctly.

If not, let me know and I'll do my best to help!



Hi Dan,

Thanks for your thorough response. This is a great video, but not quite what I was after. Sorry if I was unclear.

I want to apply conditional logic based upon labelcolour when it is moved into a list.

For example.

When a card is added to the i.e. "DONE" list;

If it has "Greenlabel" move to Board 1/List 1

If it has "Orangelabel" move to Board 2/List 2.


Move Board 3/List 3.


If you cannot do all in one rule, then 3 x rules will work...I however see no option for cards entering a list to move according to labelcolour/customfield. 


Thanks again for your help and support... another video would be great!... but I think you may find this question a bit trickier!





Hey @Anthony 

Ahh no worries! Was a fun video to make anyway. 

I think I can do what you want though. It will require multiple rules so just repeat the following steps for as many labels/boards as you need.


1. Open Butler and use the When a card is added to a list" option. Remember to use the filter shown below to set the correct label. Here I chose the orange label. 

Add this as the trigger.

NB you might need to toggle "Advanced" on the top right of this screenshot to see these extra filter options.

You can see the full trigger here...

2. Next we set the action.

Use the Move card option. Select the board you want the card to move to. Here I have set "Dan = Weekly planning" board and list to a list called "Day 1".


Here is the full Butler command.

And that should do it! 

So you'll need to make one of these for each of the labels you'll need. There might be a more elegant way to do this with a multi-step command but this should do the job.

Let me know how you get on.



And for the "Else" part. Just set the same command but don't use the label filter in the trigger. Or use the "Without label" option...

That's it!... I believe my missing step was the "advanced toggle" on the right.
