I tried using this rule, but it is not working. I also tried making the trigger "when I add a card to the board" to no avail. To be clear, the "Steps" Checklist should be blank/empty, so I just need to create a card and click on it to add the steps.
What am I overlooking?
In my experience it's better to have the checklist specifically linked to make it work. I use mine to insert a checklist for my BodyPump workouts, so that I can see how I'm improving my weights, but the example works. This is how mine looks:
The reason that I have this is so that if I change the checklist, the rule will bring in the most recent version of it. But also, if I create another checklist with the same name, Butler can't tell which one you want to have, so if you've got multiple checklists called 'steps' Butler won't be able to tell which one you want and won't copy anything.
If you have it pointing to a specific card, then it'll always know which one to copy over. I also change the name of the list to make it specific and add the date to the front of the checklist, but that's just me!
Hope this helps!
When you use the "add the x checklist" action, that's looking for an existing checklist on the card and trying to copy it. This can get complicated when multiple versions of that checklist might already exist on a board.
Instead, if you're only trying to create a new, empty checklist on the board, you want to use the 'add an empty checklist named x' action, which will do just that:
That should work much better for you!
