Automated due dates in checklist

What I am trying to set up on my Trello boards is a summary card that can then be mirrored to a "master board" in order to give a better overview of an entire portfolio of projects. 


Basically, I have linked a number of cards to the checklist in the summary card and when someone adds a date on one of the cards I need it to be added on the linked checklist item in the summary card. 


Is there any way to do this using Butler or a power-up? I am having trouble finding a way.

Hi @Daniel Mattock ! Welcome to the community :) It doesn't look like you can set this up with a simple butler rule seeing as there isn't a way to use a variable in the checklist item's due date field.

As an alternative, I'm wondering if Dashcards might help here? So instead of creating this summary card, instead, create a dashcard that dynamically consolidates the needed cards. When you open the dashcard, it will show a quick report of the cards including the due dates and assigned members:

Thank you very much! 


I will definitely be using Dashcards. Is there anyway for the due dates and items in Dashcards to be viewed in a workspace calendar, or any type of calendar?

@Daniel Mattock you're welcome! No, I don't believe so. They only offer the ability to view the cards in a tabular format (when selecting explore and edit). If you'd like to see them in a calendar view, you'd need to use Trello's native calendar board view or workspace calendar view.
