Remove matched text using Butler powerup?

Is it possible with the Butler power-up to remove matched text from a card name?

 

I have an IFTTT rules that allows me to add a new card to a board, but it has to go into a specific list (in this case, "Unfiled").

I want to preface the card name with the list I want it moved to, and then use Butler to move the card to that list, *and* remove the name of the list.

So, for example, I tell my Echo to "add 'Personal buy groceries to my To-Do list'", and IFTTT puts a card named "Personal buy groceries" to my board's "Unfiled" list.

I want the rule to then move the card to the Personal list, and remove the word "Personal". I can write a rule to find and move the card properly, but there no longer seems to be an option for "remove matched text". :(

Hi Elizabeth, there are indeed a number of actions that can still not be found within the Power-Up. 

However, there is now a quick and easy way to send off a feature request.

It's indeed a useful function and I would also appreciate if it were available.

I found this entry a few days ago as I was also missing the feature... but now I found out it is possible :-))) with {textaftermatch} .. which is wrong mentioned in https://help.trello.com/article/1157-variables as {textafter} which was not working.

when the name of a card starts with "Personal", rename the card to "{textaftermatch}", and move the card to the top of list "Personal"

 @Elizabeth Lawley is that working for you? (maybe case sensitive Personal/personal)

Like # people like this

You can achieve this by using {textaftermatch} or {textbeforematch}

 

(i just post here again, so other people can find the answer more easy)

thanks for this. I'd been searching for this function for a while!
