I'm new to Trello, but one of the features that I love is being able to see all the work you are assigned to. Sorting by Due Date I get a nice look at what I have to do. But, there's a lot of work (my personal board for example) that doesn't show up, because I was not assigned to it. In a board that consists of only one person, this would be a nice feature to have it automatically assign myself to the task. Another option is to prompt me to assign someone when a date is selected. That just makes a little more sense I think. Please let me know your ideas or suggestions.

EDIT: I guess I'm just asking if this functionality exists, because I can't find it from searching trello/google searches

Can you rephrase this in the form of a question? –  ford Jan 16 '13 at 17:30

This sounds like a feature request rather than a question about the existing functionality of Trello. If you'd like them to consider this feature, please email feature-ideas@trello.com - this board is a more general forum for existing functionality of web applications, not development. Great idea though :) –  OnenOnlyWalter Jan 16 '13 at 17:49

Sorry, my comment was also asserting that no, AFAIK this functionality doesn't exist, and you'll have to suggest the feature to their development team. –  OnenOnlyWalter Jan 16 '13 at 20:25
    
Gotcha. Thanks again. –  EGHDK Jan 16 '13 at 20:49

Great idea though :)

If you are flexible in your workflow, you could rig up a tool like Zapier to automatically create a new card with yourself set as the assignee.

Trello to Trello Zap

I am imagining a Trello to Trello Zap where you monitor any board for new cards and automatically create a copy of the card onto a "ME" board or list with yourself set as the assignee.

That's awesome. Zapier doesn't have the exact options I would like, but it's definitely getting me closer to my desired outcome. –  EGHDK Jan 18 '13 at 2:03
    
What kinds of options do you think you'd need to get it working exactly how you imagine? –  Mike Knoop Jan 18 '13 at 2:05

The trigger options for Trello are limited. I guess my ideal Zap would be "If card is added, assign this member to the card" I don't want to add another card, I just want to edit the card that was added. –  EGHDK Jan 18 '13 at 3:16

Makes sense. That sort of functionality should be coming down the pipeline in the future! –  Mike Knoop Jan 18 '13 at 4:13
