Orangising Butler

Deleted user Aug 30, 2020

Butler is a great addition to Trello, but it's really lacking in usability especially for teams. For example, a team member adds a board and wants to add specific rules that have already been created. They have to scroll through all of the rules, read each one and guess (more of less) if it's the one they want.

Can butler be upgraded so that we can add a description to the rule of what it is? In that discription we could add 1.1 blah blah and inform team membersto enable rule 1.1 for newly created boards etc. 

There has to be a better way to navigate Butler. Right now while the tool is great, naviation of rules is nothing short of paingful, especially for inexperienced users and a nightmare for people trying to administer a team.

@[deleted] I agree, the notion of a group of boards that all "inherit" certain functionality is something I was after back when it was Butler Bot. I actually created this functionality in Trellinator, but unfortunately it's a coding framework rather than an "end user" solution:

As far as your idea for telling people which rules to enable, I guess what you could do is just have a checklist in your board template that instructed people which rules to enable for each of the various types of boards you create.
