Why doesn't my Butler email report contain my REPORT?

Using: in Chrome web browser
-Thunderbird email client

I created a simple Board Button automation that builds a report and emails it to myself (command is attached below).
I click the button, the automation runs, I confirm it ran correctly by reviewing the log...
and then check my email.
The email is there but there is no report.
Here is a screenshot of the email I get:  
The "Go to Trello" link just opens up my Trello board.

It seems like my automation is creating the report and creating a notification but nowhere do I see the ability to package up the report and deliver ....  the actual freaking report!

WTH am I doing wrong?

You're definitely on the right track! There are just a couple of extra details you'll want to add to get this up and running.

First, you'll want to define a report variable. The report variable is what holds the report data. For example, my report variable is "myreport" in this example:

Next, add that report variable to your email message. To reference a report variable enclose it in curly braces, and lead with a dollar sign, like this: {$myreport}

This will result in an email with the name of each card, and a link to it. If you want to add more detail in the email, you can do that by defining a pattern. We have more detail on how to set up a pattern here on our help center:
