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". 

 

Thanks!

Rhett

@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}{*}"

 

Greets,

I was missing the {*} from my rule. Thank you for the follow up post!

My rule works now I have suffixed it with your suggested {*}. Thank you for adding this detail. My rule is now -

when a card is moved into list "Completed" by anyone, for each card linked in the attachments, check item "{triggercardlink}{*}"

I have a similar question:

 

When a checklist is created. It converts all of the "Products to Order" checklist items to linked cards. See rule below.

when an item is added to checklist "Products to Order", convert the item to a linked card in list "To Order" using pattern "[{cardname}]({cardlink})", move the card to the top of list "To Order", find the first card linked in the attachments, and move the card to the top of list "Customers"

 

Then when the linked card status is set to Arrived in stock I want to checklist item on the Products to Order Checklist to be checked. See rule below

when a card is moved into list "Arrived in Stock", find the first card linked in the attachments, and check item "{triggercardlname}" in checklist "Products to Order"

 

I used the {triggercardlname} to link back suggested above but it is not working.
