Copy checklist item as a card

Hi team!

Now at checklist functionality we have option to transform checklist item to card, which creates a card and deletes an item of checklist.

Is there a functionality (at butler for example, but I didn't found it there) not to transform checklist item but to copy?

See, what am I trying to do is like having a big card with checklist, like project overview, and checklist items as tasks that we have to do. And when time comes, would be great to click to that item and make a card out of it, but keeping the item 

And it would be nice to track the progress - like task is done, and checklist item is checked (that  I can do manually, this is only for description)

Thanks for the answers, for now I don't fully undeerstand the solutions, but I'm gonna dig into it


A card converted from a checklist item does not contain any information that can traced back to the card, nor the checklist from which it existed prior to conversion as a checklist item. The card name and perhaps the due date and assignment are taken from the item. It is also not economically to use the limited Butler entitlement to try to recreate the item. 

However, it does not have a place in doing what you had wanted. Checklist items that are links to a card and its subtask cards, can be a useful tool to ensure work and processes can be repeatedly created for team members to work on.
