How to keep a card created from a task list connected?

I´d created a card with a to-do list, and a member on our team will keep it to do. When a team member get a task, he converts it to a card.

I want to keep them connected, the new card, with the task item, because, when the card task is complete, the progress bar on parent, could be incremented.

Is there a way to do it?

@Celso Marigo Okay so let me make sure I understand your current process correctly:

1) You create a card, and on that card you add a checklist

2) A member of your team accepts responsibility for one of the items on a checklist by converting that item to a card

3) You would like the completion of that card to be visible in the parent card

The Butler Bot used to have a "when an item is converted to a card" trigger, but that appears to be absent from the power up.

So using Butler you could do this instead by creating the command:

when an item is added to checklist "Sub-tasks", convert the item to a linked card in list "New tasks"

Now, instead of team members taking responsibility by converting an item to a card, they can add themselves as a member or drag the card to their list from the New tasks list.

You can then propagate the completion of this back to the parent by having a command like:

when a card is archived, for each card linked in the attachments, check item "{triggercardlink}"

You can also do the same thing with Trellinator, I wrote about this recently here:

@Iain Dooley  this is what I need, I dont know the trello API, so I first made this question to know if there´s a native way to od what I need.

I´ll take a better look in your suggestions, one of them should fit better what I need.

Thanks for advice!
