about posting comment by Butler and activity presenting in board menu.


I have three Butler rules: 


「when an item is added to a checklist in a card in list "Project", assign the item to member @{username}, convert the item to a linked card in list "To Do", move the card to the top of list "To Do", link the cards together, add member @{username} to the card, set due in 1 months, lookup the first card linked in the attachments, and rename the card to "{triggercardname}:[{checklistname}] {checklistitemname}"」


「when a card in list "To Do" is moved into list "Doing", set due in 5 working days, and post comment "{triggercardlink} is processing in {isodate} by {username}"」


「when a card in list "Doing" is moved into list "Done", set due now, mark the due date as complete, post comment "{triggercardlink} is done in {isodate} by {username}", for each card linked in the attachments, check item "{triggercardlink}", and set the item due now」

These rules work well, but I wonder that the comment posted by Butler can be presented the member who move the card from lists "To Do" to "Doing", not the rule maker such like me, the board administrator?

And this situation will be also applied in activity within board menu, the activity logs presenting the board administrator like me who post the comment and check the due, not the member who move the card.

The situation described above will confuse member, make them do not know who actually complete the task(mark the due date).

Is there any solution or advise?

Thank you.
