Automating card being added to existing checklist

Hi all,


I am trying to automate the process of "Card 1" being linked to an existing checklist on "Card 2" when a drop down custom field on "Card 1" is set to "Occurring".

I have the below solution which only seems capable of adding a string of text to the checklist, not a link to "Card 1" itself.


when custom field "PS4" is set to "Occurring" by anyone, find a card titled "PS4 Master Ticket" in list "Submissions", and add item "This card?" to checklist "To be resolved"


My question is: Is it possible to automate the linking of "Card 1" to "Card 2"'s checklist based on a custom field inside "Card 1"?

Apologies if this was a bit confusing.

If I understand you correctly you want to add the cardlink of card2 to a checklist in card 1. If that is what you want (1) use lookup instead of find (2) use the variable {foundcardlink} as the item name and add to the checklist. 

Thank you for this reply, it definitely set me on the right path with learning the variable things!

I didn't even know variables were a thing in trello, very cool rabbit hole to go down.
