how to delete attachments and whole description with trello butler?


sorry but I cannot find the possibility delete/remove attachments and whole descriptions from cards that are emailes into trello?

Isn't that possible?

Try this

when a card is emailed into the board, set the card's description to "null"


Variables {attachmentlink} the link to attachment is available only in commands with triggers such as  

when an attachment is added to a card

But with gmail or outlook trello add on, the attachments can be discarded. 

Sorry, that is not working. I am using it like that:

when the description of a card contains "${*}", rename the card to "{wildcard1}", set the card's description to "null", post comment "Erst-Email gesendet am {date}", and set due in 2 days at 8:30 am

But with that, decription is not ermpty - now it say the word "null", so it just replaced.

What did I wrong?


And do you have links how to discard images and attachments via gmail? Should I send it to gmail and automatically forward it to trello?



Thank you

Ah ok, i see how to forward without attachments. How do I get rif of the images?

It is very unconvenient, if every card emailed to trello shows my Logo as attachment in preview.

  1. Description : try by replacing "null" by "   " or a variable which is empty {wildcard2}
  2. Add-on : after add-on is loaded, you have a shortcut available on the right panel of gmail account.
