One Way Sync - Card Description


I'm aware of the Unito Power-Up - but I'm just wondering if Butler can handle the simple one-way sync I need.

I basically just need to configure Butler to sync ANY Card Description updates one-way to a linked card. The update can replace the entire Card Description on the linked card - or the update can be posted on the comments - I don't have a preference. As long as the updates on the Card Description on the parent card gets synced to the child card.

So far, my Butler rule looks like this. I think I may have the variables wrong.

Hi @Bryan Dumaguina 

From what I can see you need to have {triggercarddescription} - because you're setting the description from another card (the trigger card).

Have a try and see if replacing {carddescription} with {triggercarddescription} in both places works for you!

Come back to us and let us know!

Hello Esme!

Thank you for that suggestion. It looks like it's working! I will observe it for 2 weeks and update here if any problems arise!
