Trello: Automatically fill custom fields from data in card body Edited

Following advice from another post I am using Zapier to preformat data that arrive as new cards by email. This works great. When the cards are created they have Description with a structured format like this:

FromName:Real Name
FromEmail:Real name real.name@company.com
DateSent:Sun, 23 Feb 2020 21:12:14 +0000
SenderIP:[123.456.789.100]

Request:My request is blah blah, nonsense, rhubarb...

 It would be awesome if these values could automagically be transported into custom fields.

There must be a way; can anyone tell me how? It would be five lines of Python, or perhaps some cunning power-up and Butler...

Hi

You can create patterns and fill custom fields with matchted texts. See this :

Thank you - that looks like it might do the trick. I would also point out that Zapier is also capable of doing a lot, I had missed a few things back from when I initially set the board up.
