Sending checklists

Hi. I have spent an enormous amount of time trying to find a way to send checklists via Whatsapp (preferred) or email.

To clarify, I am not looking for notifications when a checklist is added to a card, nor I want to create new checklists from email. I want to share my trello checklists with non trello users.

I have tried:

- Zapier:  does not allow me to send checklist contents

- Evernote: converts trello cards into todo lists, not useful at all

- Butler, same as Zapier

- Export, Json? who uses that? excel? exports all trello board

- Created new list called shared with copied cards from checklists, but have not found way to shared their contents to non trello users.

Maybe I have used wrongly the above. Please help. It would be very useful to be able to send checklist .


Thank you very much in advance

Hi Laura,

Butler does actually allow you to send the list contents by using the {cardcheckliststate} variable. This will insert a (text) snapshot of the current state of all checklists on a card.

Check out all the variables that you can use in this article:

Thank you very much. Is this only for paid Butler, or can it be done in the free version? thanks again. laura

These variables are available on all plans, but sending email notifications with Butler is limited to paid plans.

You could combine Butler posting a comment in a card with Zapier to email it (I’m not that familiar with Zapier’s plan features, sorry if this turns out not to be possible.)

Thank you vm Oscar. Will look into it, if positive Ill revert.

@LauraActually I don't think WhatsApp allows you to put messages into it programmatically.  So probably you are limited to email.

Thanks Marc, I am exploring again with zapier and email, mixed results yet
