Auto Add Checklist to all cards in a certain list

Is there a way to automatically add a checklist to a card when it is moved to a certain list? I use Zapier to auto create cards but it says there is too much data when I also have it add the checklists. Figured there might be a better way.

Hey Robby

You can incorporate Butler into your board and accomplish the task of auto-adding checklists to certain cards in a particular list.  

To add custom automation using Butlerbot, follow these steps:

1) Add Butlerbot to your board here:
-- A new list will be created titled "Butler"
2) Add a new card to the Butler list, using the follow text 

when a card is moved into list "List name", add the "Checklist name" checklist to the card

This needs to be the name of an existing checklist on a card somewhere on the board, but Butler will find it and add it to the card added to the specific list.

Hey Mathew, is there a way to do this to IE 40 cards on the same list at once. I still manually add one by one.
