Hi - I think Butler can help me do this but I'm needing some more help with a walkthrough.
I use Trello boards for client projects, and for the first 30 days we have specific cards with specific due dates dependant on the start date and I'm looking for a way to automate this.
Project starts on 1st January
First 3 cards are
Onboarding call - Day 2 of project
Get access to Google drive - Day 3 of project
Send logins for software - Day 4 of the project
I'm looking for an automation that can change the due dates on those cards to 2nd, 3rd and 4th January retrospectively.
How best can I do this?
Hi @Jackie Muscat ! It should be possible, but it may be a bit tricky to set up. You can create cascading rules with Butler automation so that when a date is set on a card, it will update the due date on another card or multiple cards. You would need to create a card called something like "Project Start Date" to be your sort of "trigger" card. When the due date is set on that card, it will start the process of updating due dates on all necessary cards.
You'll also need to relate cards together so Butler knows what cards need to be affected with the due date. One way to do this is by linking cards via the attachments. You'll also need to look at using Butler variables in order to copy the due date from one card to another. Butler doesn't allow for setting variables in the default due date, but you can achieve this using custom due dates.
I do Trello consulting, so happy to offer a free 30 mins call if you'd like to share screens together?
