If all you do is go into a card and add an item to a checklist, does the assigned member get a notification?

There's is only a notification for completing checklist items, not adding them. All subscribed members will get a notification for completing a checklist item.

  • Bummer, I wish I could notify people when I add items. Thanks! Jun 20, 2012 at 14:05

this is a somewhat delayed response but I achieved this as follows;

  1. code a Google App script to call the API Trello to get a snapshot of the Trello board/list data (store in JSON in a google sheet).
  2. code a Google App script to run every X minutes to call Trello API to get same board/list data, compare with the recent snapshot, send an email notification if check lists have changed, take a new snapshot for the next script run
