Trying to create pinned cards




I'm trying to 'fake' pinned cards to the top of my Trello lists. So I've called a Label 'Pinned' and then set up a roue that says: 

  • when the pink "Pinned" label is added to a card, sort the list by label pink "Pinned" ascending and then by due date ascending

What I'm TRYING to do is have my Pinned labelled cards at the top of my list regardless of any other rules e.g. all my other cards being organised by due date ascending. However, I think other rules are conflicting with it, because as soon as I add a new card to that list, it puts them ALL in due date ascending order, including my pinned ones. :(


Can you help please?

Hi @Anna Williamson ! Your trigger should be "when a due date is set on a card", not "when the pink "Pinned" label is added to a card". So your command should read something like this:

When a due date is set on a card, sort the list by due date ascending, then by the "pinned" label ascending.

and maybe another one for good measure:

When a card is added to list "X", sort the list by due date ascending, then by the "pinned" label ascending.

Hmm, so I seem to have resolved it by deleting my generic rule, which was conflicting, which said: when a due date is set on a card, sort the list by due date ascending. 


However, now if I add a new card and change it to a date in the PAST e.g. so I want it higher up my list than previously, it doesn't move it...even though I have the other rule set up to filter by pinned first then due date ascending.
