I've been trying to set up an automatic system in Trello where a numeric custom field (let's call it 'Card#') increases by one every time a new card is added to the board, regardless of who adds it. However, I've encountered an issue where it always shows '1' despite setting up an action to increase it by one. Does anyone have any insights or ideas on how to make this work properly?



when a card is added to the board by anyone, increase the number in custom field "Card#" by 1


Thanks in advance for your help!"

Hi @Amin 


This is because there is no easy way to find the last used Card# from what you are doing...

There is a possible easy solution.  Each card added to the Trello board has a Card Number, which increments sequentially. 

You can have an automation,

when a card is added to the board, set the custom field "Card#" to {cardnumber}
