We use cards that are repeating (daily/weekly/monthly/).
Most of those cards are more complex and have checklists and several tasks including, that we check off.
Once the card is done, it should be automatically repeated (daily/weekly/monthly/), with all the checklists and a new due date (daily/weekly/monthly/).
We used to create card-templates and copied them every single day, also putting the due date every single day, but this cannot be the solution :)
A perfect solution would be, that “once a card has marked as done”/”the due date on a card has been checked”, a new identically copy of this card with the same name and a new due date will be created.
When using the card repeater power up, the card is only repeated and does not appear directly after the before-card is done, Also I did not understand how to creating due dates with this that automatically change as well? Plus, I understood, that with the card repeater power up, it is always one original card, which is copied/repeated. So if we make additional notes/changes in the meantime in the newer cards, we always have to switch to the original card, right? It would be way easier, to just use the current card.
I hope I could explain what I mean :)
If you know the “Tasks in Planner and To Do” (an app for microsoft teams), the function of repeating is the exact thing we would need.
Thank you for your help. Kind regards, Yamuna
Hi @yamunakoelsch ! Welcome to the community 😊 have you tried using butler automation to repeat cards before? It's a lot more customizable than the repeater power-up.
Basically, you create "if this, then that" statements. So if this thing happens, then do this thing. In your case, it sounds like there would be multiple triggers maybe? So one would be when a card's due date is completed, and the other would be triggered based on a schedule.
Here are a couple of examples of automation rules that might work for you:
when the due date is marked as complete in a card, copy the card to the bottom of list "To Do", and move the due date to the same day next week
every 2 weeks on monday at 8:00 am, copy all the cards in list "Template" to list "To Do"
thank you very much. That was a very helpful advice with the automation/rules.
I set up two rules for now. Does that make sense?
Now I have the problem, that this rules are only in my account. Even when I set up the rules in our admin account (this account, Michael), the rules are only in his account. How can we create rules, that are relevant for all of our team members?
Many thanks, Yamuna
Yes that all looks fine to me! In terms of creating rules that are relevant to all members, when you create a new rule, it does mean that only that person is able to administer that rule. However, the automation should trigger for everyone based on how you've set it up. The rule is saying "when anyone marks the due date as complete..." It doesn't matter if someone isn't able to see/edit the rule itself, the automation will still run regardless. Does that answer your question?
