Way to show Last Updated from board view

I have the Card Aging Power up which is useful for determine what Tasks have not been touched for a while. The problem is you have to click to open the card and look at the top to see the date that the card was last updated. The board view shows the card as either faded or wrinkled (depending on what mode you are on) as it has not been touched in a while, but you are not able to see the actual date.

Is there a way to get this Last Updated date to show on the board view so that I do not have to open the card? I would like to be able to see the Last Updated dates on all of my cards at a glance when looking at the board without having to open each one individually.

This is a very old ask but in case anyone else stumbles across it, here's the solution I found:

- Create a custom field like "Last Updated" and set it to "show field on front of card"

- Create a butler Rule:


when a comment is posted to a card, set date custom field "Last Updated" to now

You can also create rules with different triggers depending on what you want to count as an update.  Unfortunately I couldn't figure out a way to do this with a single rule for any possible change to the card.

when a card is moved into list "List", set date custom field "Last Updated" to now

Yeah i think that's what you'd have to do... and there's a million actions of activities, so it would be difficult to set up that many rules, but for sure a good workaround if you've only got a few type of actions you'd count as updates,  like comments, changes in card description/name, etc.

@Jennifer M You could set the value on a custom field whenever something happens that involves the card, here is a Trellinator function that would do this:

As far as I know there's not a way to do this. 

Yes, I've made extended research about it and I don't find either.
