How to set label color based on trigger card?

I currently have a rule that automatically creates a linked card when I add an item to a card checklist. I would also like the newly created card to have the same label color/name as the original card. However, when I try to add this, I can only create the label name, and I can't automate the label color based on the trigger card variable.


Here's what I have right now:


This creates a new card with a colorless label called "trigger label color, trigger label name".


I've also tried separating that last line into "{triggercardlabelcolors}, {triggercardlabelnames}" and "color: {triggercardlabelcolors}, name:{triggercardlabelnames}" but I haven't been able to get it to set the label color based on the trigger card. Is what I want to do possible?

Hi Katie,

Thanks for reaching out!

That command won't work as the action is for adding a specific label to that card, which is why a new label was created!

You'll want to adjust your command to use the "convert the item to a linked card" action. With that, you'll be able to copy over the parent card's labels.

Here's what your command should look like:

You can find the "convert the item to a linked card" action under the Cascade tab.

Let me know how that goes,

That worked perfectly! Thanks Lara.
