Rules - Custom Field for Creatorname

Hello there,


I`d like to improve my Trello Tasks with a Custom Field in which i can see the name of the person who created the Card in a board. I`ve started with the Rule "Set Cusom field" > "Creator" to "*Name of the Creator*" after creating a Card. There are some Variables working like {cardname} but it doesn`t seem to work with my idea.


Thanks in Advance.

Hi @Tim Schulze ! Welcome to the community :) what variable are you using for the card creator? Did you try {username} or {fullname}?

Your command could then say something like "when a card is added to the board, set custom field "Creator" to {fullname}"

Hi @Hannah Morgan it seems like {username} is the variable i was searching for. I did try {fullname} and it doesn`t work for me.

Thanks again.
