First things first, let’s open up Trello and head to the board where you want to assign all the cards to yourself. Once you’re there, make sure you have the necessary permissions to edit cards.

Now, let’s get down to business. We’re going to make use of a simple yet powerful feature in Trello called Butler. If you’re new to Butler, don’t worry, I’ll guide you through it step by step.

Step 1: Install the Butler Power-Up

To access the full potential of Butler, you need to install it as a Power-Up in your Trello board. Don’t fret, it’s completely free. To do this, click on the “Show Menu” button on the top right corner of your Trello board and select “Power-Ups”. In the Power-Ups directory, search for Butler and click on “Add”.

Step 2: Create a Custom Command

Once you’ve installed Butler, it’s time to create a custom command that will assign all the cards to yourself. Click on the Butler icon located on the right side of your Trello board. This will open up the Butler command editor.

In the command editor, click on “Add Command” and select “Card” as the trigger type. Then, choose “Assign” as the action type. Now comes the magic part.

In the “Who?” field, type “@me”. This tells Butler to assign the cards to the person who triggered the command, which in this case is you. You can also add some conditions to make this command more specific, such as assigning only the cards in a certain list or with a specific label.

Once you’re satisfied with your custom command, click on “Save” to activate it.

Step 3: Execute the Command

Now that you’ve created your custom command, it’s time to execute it and assign all the cards to yourself. To do this, click on the Butler icon again and select your command from the list. Butler will start working its magic and quickly assign all the cards to you.
