When checking an item in checklist, move linked card (living on another list) to another list.

Hi all, 

Just started playing around with Butler. I've been able to create linked cards off my checklist items. I was also able to get it so that when I moved a linked card to my Done list, the corresponding checklist item will get checked off.

What I'm trying to do is that when I check an item in a checklist, its linked card will move to another list. When testing, I was getting the parent card containing the entire checklist to move, but I just want the child card linked to the particular checklist item to move. 

I found this board with information, but I'm still not able to move the linked child card. I haven't found a way to write out the rule as is listed there either; seems like the rules builder has undergone an update, so I can't get the syntax to match exactly.

Appreciate any help! Thanks :)

@jessicaalin the rule should look something like this:

That did the trick! I tried this same thing with the exception of "find a card with link" I used "find a card titled" - obviously that didn't work though.

Thank you :)

I'm actually looking for the same as above. But instead of all linked cards going into the same list when checked, i would like thme to go into 1 of 3 lists, depending on their suffix.

They are all identical except for said suffix


How would one go about that?

@Frederik Olsson I don't think that will be possible with Butler, but if you submit a quote request to our 3rd party automation platform here we can put you in touch with a developer who can implement this for you quickly and easily:

Can you add a screenshot of the rule you have created for this use case?
