Butler rule when a checklist item is converted to a card

Is it possible to trigger an action when a checklist item is converted to card? e.g. prepend the original card's title to the new card's title and assign it the same label?

@Ben Dunn one hack for this is to have a label on the parent card and copy labels when you convert the item to a linked card, then have a second rule which triggers when a card is created with that label.

We have a BenkoBot trigger for when a checklist item is converted to a card, your example would look like this:

You can use it yourself or we can connect you with developers that can set up your automations for you.

There is no trigger of the kind you wanted but under Cascade there are 2 actions to convert item(s)to card(s). One of them allows you to rename the item. 
If you can drag(you need to check) an item to a conversion checklist you might be able to achieve what you want.
