I want two cards on different boards to be able to use the same checklist but not allow the ability to change other aspects of one card from the other. I tried using cardsync but it syncs the whole card. I want to be able to keep restrictions on board members.
Yes, this is possible with the Butler Power-Up.
However, in regards to checklists you should be aware that syncing them involves a number of actions that need to be targeted with separate commands.
As far as I can see, you would need at least 6 commands for syncing the two checklists. And to do so, some form of a paid account with Trello, since with a free account you can set up only 1 command.
Hope that helps you. Let me know if you need more assistance with this task.
Thanks for your response. I realize I would need more commands for this and thus a paid account, however what I am still not sure is how to get the checklist with the built in commands to be synced while in different boards. So far I was able to create a command/button to check of an item on a card but it appears to only work in the specific card I am on.
If you would want to sync checklists on different boards, you have to make sure the cards are connected/linked to each other.
This can also be accomplished with a command sequence. It's a matter of the workflow design ... how you begin to set things up.
Then, when there is a link between the cards, you could simply say "when a new checklist item is added checklist XYZ, find the first card linked in the attachments and add checklist item".
I also would like to point out another way. Maybe that's more suitable and easier for you. There's a new Power-up that can sync Trello cards. It's called "Mirror". Here's an article on Trello's blog about it. It's a paid Power-Up with a 14 day free trial, but it seems to me as if it is much easier to set up as the commands required for the Butler Power-Up.
