Sorry new to Trello.

I'm creating a workflow for an app development. We have 4 main lists:

  • Design
  • Frontend
  • Integration
  • Backend

The card (and it's checklist) should jump from one list to the next as it's completed.

So let's say we have a task for homepage with these tasks currently under the "Design" list:

  • Weather bar
  • Header
  • Footer
  • Banners

Once the Designer finish designing the weather bar and checks it, it creates the "Homepage" task under the Frontend dev list with a checklist containing "Weather bar" (and adds the others as they complete.

And so on.

Sorry if this is an amateur question, still new to all this.

Hi Anthony - welcome to the community!

An automation rule might help to achieve your desired workflow of automatically moving the card from one list to another when a specific action happens. For example, you could create an automation rule:

when the "Weather bar" item is checked in a card in list "Design", move the card to the top of list "Frontend"

Then you could also create other automations based on the checklist item, and list the card should move to next.

We have a guide with more information about creating and managing automations.

I hope that helps!
