How to link due date from Checklist Item to the new Linked Card

I have created checklist templates for specific projects. What I would like to do is:

-Once I set a date on the item within a checklist in my Projects List, convert the item to a linked card into another list (To Do) and set the due date of the new card to match the original item's due date and assigned member.


What I currently have:

Trigger: When an item is unchecked in a checklist named "Influencer Checklist" in a card with a due date, convert the item to a linked card in list "Influencer To Do" copying labels.


I cannot for the life of me figure out how to set the due date on the new card to match the item's due date, or add the assigned member from the item to now be the assigned member on the card.

That's a good catch - when you convert a checklist item to a new Card manually by clicking the "..." menu next to that Checklist item, then selecting "Convert to Card" the Due Date is copied, but when you convert it using Butler it isn't copying that Due Date. At the moment, I don't think there's a way to automate this with Butler I'm afraid, but I'm glad to bring this up with the development team as an improvement for the future. 

It would be great for this to be automatically part of the Butler feature! I would appreciate you bringing this to the Dev team.
