Where do I find the "count card" command in the butler rule section?


I would like to create an automation where a message on slack is displayed with the number of cards remaining in a specific list.

Therefore I need a rule where I can count the cards in a list. 

The command is explained here:

And here:


Is this command still not working/existing?


Or is there another way to do it?

For Example I can create a report and then show the report with the {$report} variable.


Is there a variable to display the number of cards in this report?

something like {$cardcountreport}

Apparently the {cardcountresult} variable is an existing one, right?

Hey Aurelien, the links you've provided are of the old Butler Bot, which is the legacy system in Trello. Our new Butler/Automation is in-built and doesn't have a count cards function.

I recommend looking at the Dash Cards power-ups instead:
