Automatically create a checklist item from an attachment

Hey guys, I was wondering if there was a way to automatically create a Checklist item with the name of the attachment which is just uploaded.

So let's say I upload a file called "image1.png". My goal is to have a checklist item called "image1.png" appear in a checklist.


This does seem like a easy thing to do but I just can't figure it out, thanks in advance for your help!

It is pretty easy you just need to know about butler variables. 


I would use a rule that is something like this 

when an attachment is added to a card, add item "{attachmentname}" to checklist "Checklist name"


A list of butler variables and how to use them can be found here: 


Hope this helps

Thank you so much, will check that out!

Hi Petar/Dan,


I tried doing the same thing with {attachmentlink} but received an error "The checklist item name cannot be empty"


I want the checklist item to also be the same link as the attachment.


Any suggestions?

Nevermind. spelling error. works!

Hi everybody,


I have a similar question on this case but I would like to have Board button for that. We are manufacturing company and sometimes there are a lot of details needed to be produced and for that case we would like to have "on demand" checklist from attachments. I tried and it works like a simple automation rule. With card button automation it gives same error like Niel Ruben had - "The checklist item name cannot be empty".


I hope that the explanation was clear enough :)
