is it possible to create a butler board button to filter cards with a specific label?

I want to be able to click a button and only show cards with a specific label. I can't see this command as an option but I may be missing something?

@timsmith_biz hit the "f" key then start typing the label name, then you can use the down arrow to pick the label you want to filter by.

There's no single key shortcut for filtering by a given label in the same way as there is for filtering to show all cards assigned to yourself (ie. "q") however once you have applied the filter, the URL updates so you can bookmark the page to go back to the board filtered by that label later for example:

thanks Iain - I was hoping for a butler board button but your suggestion seems like a good alternative :-)

I second this. Add Butler criteria for Board Buttons to filter by label. Include 2 x options to allow positive and negative filtering.

Positive - show only cards that have label x[,y,z]

Negative - do not show any cards that have the label x[,y,z]

Basically add a new category of criteria named "filter" or "search" for Board Buttons.

Use case: I want my team to be able to click a button to filter-out all management cards on the board.

I do appreciate that Atlassian have a focus on coming back with an alternative - but for suggestions I am getting frustrated that this is the response every single time. I think you need a re-think of suggestion-handling.

I agree that a Butler Board Button should be able to filter cards. If you can use these buttons to sort cards, then filtering seems like a logical enhancement to improve your Trello workflow.

Using the "f" key, then typing the label, then toggling to the right selection is not ideal. I'll take it given the options, but Butler automation can improve this experience.
