Trello Automation

I can't seem to find a way to make an automation similar to the follow:


When card containing "78" in title is created in list "76-80" remove card containing "78" in title in list "To-Do"

Hi @Ayden Heinig ! Welcome to the community :) would this work for you?

I don't believe so, my point is not to rename the card but to remove the card from the list completely.


There are situations in my Trello organization where I have a list of cards under To-Do that have to be done and instead of dragging the card from To-Do to the respective completed list, they just make a new card in that respective list with the same or similar title. I would just like it to remove the card from list when they have those similar names so that I don't have to go in and compare the cards and then remove it myself.

Ah, got it! I misread your question thinking you wanted to remove the "78" from the card's title. So you're basically just wanting to avoid duplicate cards, and if Trello finds a duplicate, it should archive the one in the "To do" list - is that right?

Would this make sense?

You could also add an action in there to email yourself with the card links so you can be notified when duplicate cards are added.

This only works if the duplicate cards share the same name. If you've got duplicate cards that don't share the same name exactly, it may get a bit complex i.e how do you ensure butler is looking up the correct cards and how do you avoid cards getting archived when they're not actually duplicates. 

I've also suggested a similar solution here

Thank you so much. I ended up simplifying it down a little bit and it works perfect. Thank you for your help. Capture.PNG
