Problem automation Butler with linked checklist


I have in board 'A' a checklist, and each checklist has a share link to a card on board 'B'. I want to do an automation that if a card on board 'B' is moved on list 'Done' that the corresponding checklist on board 'A' is getting automatic checked.

Can't find a way how to do this. Is this possible?

Kind regards,

The cards in board B will need to know which card has the checklist with the cardlinks to the cards in Board B. Typically you would have a first attachment as the cardlink when the dependency is first established. 

Thanks for your reply.
So I need to do an extra step on all the cards on board 'B' who has a connection to the checklist on board 'A'. You mentioned an attachment. Not clear exactely what to do now. Can you help me further which steps I need to take? Thanks!

If you were to use the collect card action, then for each card linked in checklist item, add link using the {triggercardlink}… Try it.

Thanks for helping me. I'm trying, but too bad it's not clear for me yet. I'm not so familiar with butler yet. 

From what I understand I don't have to anything on the cards on board 'B', is that correct?

And you mentioned {triggercardlink}. Is that a variable or so which I can use, see my following set up:

When a card is moved into list 'Done'

for each card linked from an item in checlist

check item

Sorry, maybe it's quite simple to do it. But not sure what to do with {triggercardlink} if I need to copy and paste a link somewhere.

Maybe it's too difficult to explain, but hope you explain it a bit more.

I realised "collect cards" creates checklist list on current board but here's one solution.
