Rule to add card members according criteria list

Is there any solution for the following:

I have about 10 members on a board, who are managing 200 properties. Each property has a unique ID.

This ID is always contained in the name of the card (cards come from e-mail).

Now I want to add members to new cards according to the ID in card name.

A theoretical solution would be "when the name of the card contains "IDxxx" OR "IDyyy" OR "IDxxy" - but that's apparently not possible!?

Another solution would be the creation of 200 rules, one for each ID - which doesn't seem efficient.

This seems to me as a relative common use case but I struggle to find a solution, even with power ups. Thanks a lot for support!

Hi @Florian Thomann ! Welcome to the community :) You can achieve this using the trigger you mentioned and wildcards. So something like this:

when the name of a card starts with "hannahmorg{*}", add member @hannahmorg to the card

Hi @Hannah Morgan ! Thank you for your answer. Unfortunately this doesn't solve the problem for  me.

Maybe this example in pseudocode is more clear in what I am searching for:


If card title contains "123" or "384" or "943" add member "John"

If card title contains "127" or "835" or "743" add member "Mary"


Even better would be the possibility to use a matching table to assign members and costum fields.
