Use templates in Butler


It's nice that Trello now has templates and the possibility to create cards via previously defined templates, but it would be even nicer if it was possible to use these templates in Butler actions.

So for example, every 25th of the month, I'd like to create a card from a template, place it in a specific board and list, with a due date.

Please consider adding this! Or perhaps it's already there and I can't see it?

Great idea—Butler can't currently copy cards in scheduled commands, though you can do that in Rules, by first _finding_ the card via its link ( and then copying that card. Not quite the same but might still be helpful!

Thanks but I'm not using Rules here... It needs to be in the scheduled commands.

Now I can use Butler to copy cards, or move, but. Do I can create cards from template?

Any update here? It would be extremely useful to be able to create a new card from a template in Butler
