Butler check-item action based on a linked card

Hi everyone! I'm needing a bit of Butler help. This is what I'm wanting to achieve:

1. "When an item is added to a checklist, convert the item to a linked card"
2. "When a card moves to the "Done" list, mark the linked check-item as complete"

I've created the first statement which looks like this:

So far so good.

The part I'm struggling with is the second statement. I've tried a few things using the cascade action and variables, but I'm not very familiar with that part of Butler

TIA! :)

Hi @hannahmorg - Thanks for reaching out to the Community! You were very close with your current set up. Here's how the rule should look:

We're first going to 'find the first card linked in the attachments' on your link card which should be the card where your checklist lives. Then we're going to use the `{triggercardlink}` variable instead of `{triggercardname}` as the checklist item is actually a link when it's converted to a link card; Trello just automatically converts the link to a stylised version of the card which shows the title.

I hope that helps!

Amazing - thank you, Lam! All working smoothly 😎
