find the first card in a list > Butler

Hi, How can I:


When I move the "x" card to "b"

find the  first card in list  "c" ( I cant find that command on trello but in butler web page it seems)

2 answers


First select your trigger, then on the action butler panel, click on "cascade" tab (the last suggested tab)

Thx for answer but at there there are only:


find the  first last first card linked in the attachments

find a card  titled with link titled 


There are no other finding methot at there..

But at butler own panel: ""


there is "

find the first card in a list "

There are, look inside the command you have icons which allows additionnal options. Just click on.


I cant see any "more" buttons in here :(

Indeed, you're right. It is not exactly the same rules. Actually the finding card commands are based on a name or a link. In general, it allows to do the job.

If you precise fonctional needs, probably we will find a solution for your use case. 

But as you see, in butlerfortrello web page, there is what I want.


I can use it from here?


or I can type custom rule manuelly?

You must create commands with butler libraries without using butlerfortrello web page.

so if there is a way for what I want, please can you tell me how?. I need it a lot.

I need:


When I move a card from a list to another list...: (this is one card)

top of the card of a list need to move second list. (this is another card)

First, you need to create a link beetwen the 2 cards.  

A possible way just by adding one rule and one checklist,

Concerning the linking rule between 2 existing cards,

when an item is added to checklist "linked card" by anyone, 
find a card titled "{checklistitemname}" on board "Myboard",
and link the cards together

Concerning the use case, 

  1. add a checklist named "linked card" in one of the 2 cards. 
  2. add an item in this checklist (item name = name of the card to link)

This last event will trigger the linking rule, you will obtain 2 linked cards what allows to synchronize the card movement. 

when a card is moving to list "B", 
find the first card linked in the attachments, and move the card to the bottom of list "C"

Just move a card in the list B and the linked card will be moved in the list C

yes I thought samething but. When I change the top card of the list... it wont take the first card , it will again same linked card so it will be very hard to manage what I want them to do... it will be very easy if only "move the first item of the list" :S

Unfortunately, this command doesn't exist. If the first card of the list changes, you should define a new link and remove the old.

Also we can not manage "what can team members can see or not"... all of them is not logical for a like that program....

trello is certainly a software which induces some constraints but which allows a high level of automation without having knowledge of programming. Personally, I don't know other equivalent tools except being able to develop a java application.

Finaly, if you have some technical skills, you will be interested by trellinator which improves trello capacities.

@haluk @Ludo this Trellinator function will post a comment containing the name of the first card in list named "c" to a card when it is moved into a list named "b":
