"Move card to next (left/right) list" using Butler - is this a possible automation?

Our workflow is set up such that cards move from left to right across our board, as they progress. As such, it would be handy to have a button on the card that moves it to the next list, on it's right. 

I know it's possible to create a button for each list, individually, by using the list name; however, this is unnecessarily complicated (& crowded), as all we really need is the ability to "move to top of next list" (or "move to top of the list to the right of current list" to be more precise), is this possible?

@rax adaam - yep, this is possible! When configuring your Card Button, assign it TWO actions, in this order:

  • move the card to the next list on the board, and
  • move the card to the top of the list

Hope this helps you keep calm and carry on. ⚡

Thank you, Dave! I just saw that the drop-down menu had these options; I overlooked them, initially, because I didn't expect "move to previous / next" to be alongside "move to top/bottom." Take a little while to discover all the options & understand how the quasi semantic programming language actually works. Appreciate the help!
