Copy and Paste from List Multiple Fields into Advanced Checklists

In regular checklist you can copy past a list which will create multiple items under a checklist.  As described in "Importing Checklist Items" Link:

Copy Paste Once from a List to create 3 different checklist items
Item A
Item B
Item C

Does this same type of ability work for Advanced Checklist with the additional fields like Due Date and Assignment with some common separator.  For Example

Copy Paste Once from a List to create 3 different checklist items with Due Date and Assign Populated
Item A | 2021-09-01 | Member A
Item B | 2021-10-05 | Member B
Item C | 2021-11-06 | Member C

Is this type of copy/paste supported for multiple fields in advanced checklists?

@Henry H this BenkoBot function would do that for you:

You will probably need a coder to set this up and add or edit automations but we can put you in touch with developers to do that for you if you nor people on your team are coders.

Thanks for sharing is feature.

The trigger options and operations currently does not support advanced checklist other that to add a specific member or set a due date.

If the data goes into each item in a formatted string and you want to turn them into a member assigned and an item due date, can probably use wildcards to extract the data. However, given that you cannot use a data string or member string to set them onto the idMember or due fields, you may have to feed these via http request to some code to handle it for you.

Or simply, iterate through the items and call the endpoint to handle both the extractiing, setting of idMember and due, and reformatting the name of the item.

A law firm create a structure item that looks like :

"Item ABC is assigned to <username> and it is due in <X> days"

With that the endpoint use the username and X to find the member id and computed the due date to update the item with new name "Item ABC" and at the same time created a card somewhere with a due date so that a notification will be sent to the member automatically by Trello's notification system.
