As a long-time user of Trello, I always had the feeling there is something missing.
I loved this tool for its simplicity, its flexibility, its adaptability. But I was longing to be able to create automations and workflows that fit my personal working style. Now, things have changed and I was able to find a tool that helps me to create workflows – and lets me help others to create the same for others!
This Workflow Kit for Automated Classic Trello Boards – Advanced Setup contains a number tested and verified workflow commands that are easily to set up with the Butler Power-Up.
They are designed for the classic Trello board setup with 3 lists: “To Do”, “Doing”, “Done”.
To implement these workflows, the Butler Power-Up has to be enabled in Trello. (Make sure you’ve got at least a Trello Gold account, since the options you have within Butler with a free Trello account are not satisfactory for this setup!)
Features of the Workflow Kit for Automated Classic Trello Boards – Advanced Setup
The workflows compiled in this Automated Classic Trello Boards – Advanced Setup are aimed to automatically:
- move cards between lists (‘To Do’ ➩ ‘Done’ & ‘Doing’ ➩ ‘Done‘)
- sort cards
- respond to changing due dates
- signal overdue cards
- trigger a notification on a certain text phrase (like “Urgent”; but this can be changed to any word or phrase you like)
- periodically clean up the board by archiving cards (in an either daily or weekly rhythm)
- setup sophisticated archiving routines, or build an archive repository (history management of your completed tasks)
These workflows are meant to alleviate avid Trello users from the pains of self-organization and the hundreds of tedious manual clicks that inevitably come up when multiple Trello boards need to be handled. This Workflow Kit Automated Classic Trello Boards – Advanced Setup is an enhancement of the Basic Version. It comes with a few more features, but like in the basic version you are free to add your own commands and expand them to your working style.
This Workflow Kit can be implemented in as many Trello boards as you want.
Move Cards Automatically Between Lists
Push Due Cards to the Top of The List
Notification for Overdue Cards
Sort Cards on Schedule (e.g., by Due Date)
Archive Completed Cards Regularly
