Adding a checklist to an existing card automatically

I have successfully automated a card to be moved from one list to another once a trigger of a checklist is complete.


I want to add an additional action of adding a new checklist from a template card after it has been moved into the new list.  


I have used the proper checklist and name. I've even copy and pasted the link to the card in the actions but the checklist cannot be found.

Hi there! Welcome to the community 🙂 might seem like a silly question, but is the checklist in that template card spelled exactly as "Onboarding"? 

Additionally, are you able to try editing the first rule and just adding a second action to it rather than adding two separate rules? So it would look like this:

I tested the above automation and it all worked fine.
