Board button to copy specific checklist title from multiple cards and create one new card


The lists on my boards contain some checklists that I have titled "prep." I need to create a board button that will either copy each of these checklists and place them into one card on a new list in a different board *OR* will make a copy of each card and place it into a new list on a different board. Either option should work. 


Thank you for your help!

@L C I'm not sure whether you're talking about checklists or cards (because lists can't contain checklists), but probably what you want to do is copy a bunch of cards to another list on another board based on a filter, using these options:

Hi, i'm trying to select multiple Trello cards (to simultaneously move them to another list or add to all of them a label at once) and I came across this thread here, but @Iain Dooley I don 't understand how you get to the screen that you copied here and marked in red. could you please tell me how to get there from any board? 


Thank you very much,

@Iain Dooley thanks! I tried it in Butler and it worked, but although I wrote the command 'link the cards together' when I make changes or delete the card in the board that I applied the action to, it doesn't make the changed or is deleted in the original cards to which I applied the trigger.

Is there any way to write a command in Butler, that will not only copy the card to another board in a list I specify, but also that will enable me to sync between the original card and the new card created by Butler, so that changes in any of the two will be mirrored in the other? 

Thank you so much!

@L C there is, but you have to create multiple commands and it's unlikely to work as completely as you would like. If you want to sync cards, try Unito or Placker.
