Hi there,

I made a button that copies all cards in a list ("To Do") on a certain board ("Social"), to a different list on a different board (the list is "On deck" on the board "Bird's Eye Project View.")

But Trello keeps saying it can't find the target board and suggests it may not be spelled correctly. Has anyone found a solution for this problem? I've seen other people comment somtehing similra without luck. Is this a feature that can't be done on private boards maybe? We're totally stumped. 


Thanks in advance!Button rule.pngcan't find.png

Hi, I believe this will be the case if the person clicking on the button it isn't a member of the board "Social".

The button click is executed by the user who clicks it, whereas an automation rule runs from the person who creates it.

One solution to get around this.  Have a Transfer list on your first board.

The button rule becomes

Copy all cards to list "Transfer"

Then set up a rule,

when a card is copied into list "Transfer", move the card to list "To-do" on board Social  

Note, the person who writes these rules will need to be a member on both boards
