how to set confluence inline task due date from variable?

We're using confluence templates to create a circulation slip for certain events, assigning the due date as template variable.

On the created page itself, we automatically assign a bunch of tasks to different individuals.

However, although the due date is set as //$dueDate it is not recognized by the inline tasks as such. The due date works only when entered manually via datepicker, which is not an option for dozends of entries, hence the variable.

Any idea how I could get this to work? Is there an alternative markup variante to describe a task?

Ever get a solution to this?

Nope, but still very interested in a solution. I replace the dates manually by stepping through every new document, replacing the text with a date control markup from the clipboard, very annoying and Error Prone...
