Problems with Card Repeater power-up


We have been experiencing some problems with the Card Repeater power-up since about two weeks ago. It doesn't happen with all of the repeating cards on our board, but about half of them no longer show when the next repeat will occur, and our settings also aren't shown when opening the repeater menu from the card. Also, after opening one of these cards, the repeat icon will disappear and then reappear about 5 minutes later.

However, as far as we can see most cards still repeat according to how we set them up, we just can no longer check their settings. Which is kind of difficult considering we use a lot of them. Removing and re-enabling the power-up doesn't solve the problem. Is there anything else we can try?

@Cedric Hartskeerl I've started to prefer using Butler/automation to automatically create a duplicate card on a set schedule rather than using Card Repeater Power-Up. You can try setting up a rule like this under the Calendar section of Automation.


You'll also have some more options for customization, like variables in the card name (like the day or week of the card, that way you can sort out which repeats are which), and you can easily edit the rules from your Automation settings. 

Oh that does seem very useful. I will definitely give it a try, thanks!

The butler automation is very versatile, but with its limitations on executions per month I prefer this power-up. It is also much faster and user friendly to use this power-up.

I decided to try butler automation as per @Brittany Joiner suggestion and realized this option works better for me. For some reason card repeater stopped working on my board and was not working for new cards. I tried different approaches to make it work again such as refreshing the browser, login out and back again without success. Moving to automation did the trick and further more with a lot of other options to customize the card creation. The option to make the new created automation task run righ away is a good feature because it makes you can check if the card has been created as expected.

This is still an issue. Will it ever be fixed or is the protocol to ignore it and hope it goes away?? Not going away! I'm complaining as you can tell...

Why would I commit to using a tool that does not work? Maybe a Trello alternative is the answer?

@Michael Nero what's the issue you're seeing? and have you tried to use Trello Automation for creating repeating cards?
