How to check items on checklist when their card is done

Hello fellow Trello-community,


I'm starting to dive deeper into the trello tools and coming up with first questions. 

Does anyone know if there is a possibility to automatically check items of a checklist, when the card linked to the item is moved into a list "done".

@Rhett Büttrich sure, if you use Butler to create the linked checklist this is easiest, because then you will have a bidirectional link.

So the first Butler command is:

When a card is moved to list "Create subtasks" convert the checklist "Subtasks" into linked cards in list "Tasks for {triggercardname}"

Now a second Butler command will check the card off for you:

When a card is archived find the first card linked in the attachments and check item "{triggercardlink}"

Hi Iain! 


Thank you for the help! 


My final Butler-Rule was "when a card in list "Checklist items" is moved into list "Completed items", find the first card linked in the attachments, and check item "{triggercardlink}{*}"
