Set up Rule to change cover color

Is there a way to set up a rule to change the cover color for a card?

@Dianna Hassebrock i don't believe there's any automation around card covers, but depending on what you're trying to accomplish, perhaps you can use card labels? there is automation with changing the label based on certain triggers, like moving in or out of a list, member assigned, due dates, etc.

There's no built-in automation, no (though a lot of people are asking for it). 

There is a way to 'hack' it, though, as detailed here:,Although%20Butler,-currently%20can%27t%20change

It can be a bit fiddly to get it working but I've managed to set covers based on due date, so it can be done!
