Sync cards and checklist items with Trello Automation

Hey folks! Saw someone asking on Reddit about how to add a newly created card as a checklist item in another list. Took me a second to figure it out, but I realize with Butler rules it was totally possible! They then wanted to try to figure out how to also check off that item as complete when the card was completed - and they figured it out before I got to it! (Full credit to u/BankNote17 for that! They're a fellow Trello enthusiast working for NISEI - volunteer game organization providing ongoing support for Netrunner.)

Here's a video showing how it works if you want to set something up yourself.

Great for if you want a "main checklist" that shows progress and notes on an overall project while having cards for each item that details the checklist.)

Let me know if you have any trouble setting it up or need any help!

@Brittany Joiner thanks for the video. Are the assignee(s) and the due date also synced between the card and the checklist items. I want to know if I make a change of assignee and due date in one (i.e the checklist item), it will be reflected in another (i.e card).
