To set the context I have a meal-planning board that features a whole load of cards (recipes) that each have a checklist called ingredients.
Every Sunday night I plan the weeks meals and therefore my shopping list.
What I wanted to do, using butlerbot or something similar is to copy recipe cards into a 'planning' list, and have it pull the 'ingredients' checklists from each card and populate a master checklist in the card 'shopping'.
I hope this makes sense and that someone can help me with what I'm trying to do! I can always make the board public and share a link if that would be helpful.
Hi Andy, I'm not sure if you are able to merge cards out-the-box within Trello, but you may have some luck with using the REST API to merge the two into a new card.
Reading through the Trello documentation, you are able to copy Checklists from other cards, which may provide what you're looking for.
Not an answer from me:
I would +1 this question. I too am in the exact same boat. I am wondering if anyone has tackled creating a plug-in for this. Some of the caveats would be duplicate entries being merged and incremented. For instance, 1 lb hamburger showing up on the final list 4 times should be turned into 4 lb hamburger.
Anyone have experience building a simple plug-in?
Hey @Andrew Parker
We have an awesome resource for this! Check out the link below for a tutorial from one of our customer success team members. I think you'll find it helpful in creating a master board.
