dynamically Dropdown Field with list name from other board


i have a Master Board and a "Opportunity" Board. I would like to sync card between this boards. 

So my question is if i create a Card on the master board and it should be assigned to a certain list on my Opportunity" Board ... my idea was to have a custom filed where i can select the right Opportunity (Opportunity == Listname) .

Is there a way to dynamically fill the custom file as dropdown with all the list name from that board? 


any suggestion or perhaps recommendation for a power up?

@Andreas Buis there's no built-in way to do this, the API *does* allow you to dynamically create custom field options, it's a feature I haven't implemented into Trellinator yet, but I could do so as part of a custom implementation, if this is important enough to you you can get in touch with me via the link in my bio.

If you wanted to use labels as the trigger instead of custom fields you could use these 2 Trellinator commands:

Thanks i will look into it.

Just a simple question on top ... how dose a action with the Trellinator count to the number of comands / operations - as this are limited in trello?

@Andreas Buis nope it doesn't have anything to do with Butler, you're constrained by the Trello API rate limits and Google Apps Script quotas (which are MUCH higher ;)

Thanks, but I larrday gut stuck with the simple Hallo World . follwing al steps ist dosent replay... i pretty sure i made somethin wrong. 

I will look to it later
