HI Laura,


thanks for quick reply. Your answer promises good news because apperently it can be done. But I can't find the settings for queries in trello (newbie sorry). can you point me in the right direction?

Hi laura, no problem. I've read your link but the issue I have is that I want to have it automated. If you pick an item of a list, the card turns green automatic.... is that possible?
