Changing a converted checklist items name by adding the original cards name


Ive setup a list of customers, in that list I have cards for each customer. within each customer card is a checklist of the jobs I need to do for them. I have managed to create a rule that when I add a job to the check list "Jobs to do", it then adds that to a "tasks" list. If I add a new checklist item called "kitchen" to say a card called "Russell" this creates a new card Called "kitchen" in my "tasks" list.

when an item is added to checklist "Jobs to do", convert the item to a linked card in list "Tasks"

I would like that new card to say "Russell - Kitchen".

Please can anyone help with this?

@Nick Howse hi there! Russell's name is on the card right? You should be able to use  the {cardname} Butler variable. So go edit your rule for create a new card in "tasks" to be named `{cardname} - Kitchen`.


More details on Butler variables here

Thanks for that!! It works!!

Nick can you share how did you set up your first rule here. I am trying to create a parent-child relation between items that are converted into cards, and add card links instead of items. but butler no longer has the when the item is converted rule
