Only trigger action if item is added to specific checklists

I have multiple checklists on various cards.

However if an item is specifically added to "Checklist ABC" on Card A or "Checklist DEF" on Card B, then I want to perform certain actions.

I thought this command might work

when an item is added to checklist "{checklistname}" by anyone

but it is triggered when an item is added to any checklist - not just checklist ABC or DEF.


Can I specify an array of checklists in a command?

@Aneekah Fataar yep you can use regex:/(ABC|DEF)/ as the checklist name

What do you mean by regex? 

I solved the problem by putting the cards with these checklists into a dedicated list.

This is the trigger:

when an item is added to checklist "{checklistname}" in a card in list "FY22 Projects"
