Trigger ''by anyone except'' multiple users?

Hi, is it possible to add somehow multiple users into trigger of rule ''by anyone except@" ? I need to define 5 admins who are allowed to move cards, and if somebody else move card then I want butler to send me notification through slack. But I am only able to set one user after @ sign. Any idea how to make it work? thanks image.png

Hi @Igor Tokarcik 👋

Welcome to the Community! I've taken a look at this for you and tested it on my own Trello workspace but unfortunately I've not managed to find a way to add more than one user to the 'except rule.' For example, using commas didn't offer me a functionality to add additional users and this is usually a common way to do this.

My recommendation would be to pop a support ticket in with Trello directly just in case there is a solution however my gut is saying it's just not a functionality at the moment. You can raise a support ticket here >>

I hope this helps but if you have any more questions just ask away 😃

All the best,


Hi @Laura Holton , thanks for checking. I will raise ticket and will post their reply here.

I found one variable which looked promising -> {cardmemberusernames}  , but seems like this rule did not do anything. Do you know how this works? If in other type of rule it can somehow check if person who triggered action is member of card? thanks

Hi @Igor Tokarcik ,
did you finally manage to find a solution to add multiple users in your rule?
I have the exact same need and for now I have to create one rule for each person.

Hi Romain, nope, so far I did not found any solution for this case. I made workaround, by few rules, where I send notification to admin if card gets moved to other direction as I would expect and that will notify admin to check what happened. If card should go from list A to B, but suddenly it jumped to list C, Admin is notified and he can handle correction. This way I am not sending notification on each move, just on those which looks suspicious. I hope this helps you
