Designate where a triggered checklist is added to a card

I have template cards that are designed with multiple checklists.

When a new card is created from a template, certain custom fields can be checked. If a field is checked, it triggers a new checklist to be added to the card. (Each new checklist "add on" is saved in its own unique template card.)

Is there any way to designate at what place in the card (before or after a pre-existing checklists) these new checklists are added to the card? Currently, new checklists are added at the end of the checklists.

Sorry, but Butler scripts currently don't support sorting checklists within a card or adding them in a particular order, they are just added sequentially.

Thanks for the speedy response! Do you have any suggestions for a workaround?


A solution with a similar functionality would be if each checklist add-on (which lives on a template card dedicated just to that checklist) could be added as a copied - not linked! - card to the parent card. Is this possible with a Butler script?

For information and examples of how to do you solution, seach for 'Trello Butler link cards'.
