Step 5 – Setup The Action

Before we continue with creating the Zap make sure you have a board setup that you will be using as a workspace for what we are going to create.

Lets go over the required fields in order to make this Zap work properly

Under the ‘Set up action‘ Select the Board you will be using

Then select To-Do for the List option

For the name of the Card use:
Land Purchase Due Diligence Checklist – Property ID
You also want to add a merge field from Investment Dominator Called Property ID which you will attach to the end of the title.

Click at the end of the title then under Insert Data use the search bar to lookup ID it will be the first number that we see here. Now our title is able to attach to the property we are working with.

It is also optional to have the Description field entered to see the example above.

Lastly, we need to create a Checklist Name lets call it Due Diligence

Now when you create a checklist you will be given a chance to enter all 12 checklist items that are on the Due Diligence pdf within the LPG.

Enter any other optional information you need before we begin the testing phase.

Once done click the ‘Test & Continue‘ button

To verify the test we just did was completed correctly you will notice within your Trello Account this will now generate our new Card.

Let’s head over to Trello to verify the actions on our Zap.

Remember that you will need to go to the board created before this zap to view it correctly.

Lastly double-check the information on the checklist is how you want and make note of any changes that need to be done on the Zap.

Once completed and verified within your system you will get a final confirmation message that your Zap works!

Hooray! Now, whenever a record is updated within your Land Records to the Open Escrow Detailed Research status; this will trigger a new Card on Trello along with the additional Tasks Items for the Due Diligence Check List to populate from Zapier!
