Regarding Trello Checklist

I've found that when I have an item as part of a checklist for a card, and then make that item become it's own card there is no link created between the two cards. 

I've also found that when a card is linked to another as part of a checklist and you complete that card/task, it doesn't update it's parent task accordingly. When having a large amount of tasks to complete this would mean having to continually and manually update every checklist. Is there a way to have this done automatically or is there no autonomy for these functions?

Hi Toby,


You're right, currently, neither of those two things happen, and it's not possible to enable that to happen. These are great ideas, though! At the moment, Trello doesn't do much in the way of automation, but I’ll definitely let the team know that this is something you're looking for!
