Question about Butler and adding labels and moving cards

Hi all


I have created 4 unique lists based on classes that I am taking - with cards in each list detailing the tasks I need to complete. 


1) Can I create an automation to add a label to all cards in a certain list? The list and cards have already been created. Ie. In my Assessment class list I would like to automatically add the label "Assessment" to all cards existing in that list. 


2) I move certain cards to a To Do Today list and when I complete those cards I label them as DONE and then manually move them back to their original list at the bottom. Can I have Butler move a card back to its original list when a card is labeled DONE?


Thank you!

1) I think this rule will do it:

when any label is added to a card, collect all cards in list "{triggercardlistname}" into linked items in checklist "Add Label", for each card linked from an item in checklist "Add Label", add the "{labelname}" label to the card, find a card with link "{triggercardlink}", and remove the "Add Label" checklist from the card

2) The variable "{triggercardpreviouslistname}" is your friend here. You could use the custom fields power up and set the value to "{triggercardpreviouslistname}" when a card is moved, then when the Done label is added, move the card to the bottom of that list using the custom field value like "move card to the bottom of list {{%From List}}"
