Creating an automation where the trigger is checking off a specific item on a checklist

I can't seem to get this to work...any help appreciated.

Basically, once a specific item in a checklist is ticked, I would like that to trigger moving the entire card that includes that checklist to the top of another list on the same board. I would additionally like to add a due date to that card for 24 hours into the future.

Even if I strip down my command, I can't seem to get the trigger to cause anything to happen...much less the two actions I am hoping for.

Here is what I have so far:


Again, any workarounds, tips, or tricks are much appreciated!

@Babs Noelle that command looks correct, have you tried with differently named items/list etc.? Like for example can you create a checklist item called "test" and trigger like:

when the "test" item is checked post comment "checked"

and start from something that simple and build it up?

Also check the Usage Log for errors:

Thank you so much, Iain! I will give that a try. It's good to know that what I'm trying to do should at least (in theory, anyway) work if I get it just right.

Warm regards!

On a whim, before erasing everything I had written, I changed the name of the checklist item in question…by simply replacing the colon with an equals sign.
