Automation with due dates

I am trying to create a board for one of the instructors at my company. Before a particular class, the instructor has to complete several tasks 2 weeks before the class, 1 week before the class, etc. Is it possible to have them enter the start date of the class on one card, and have that automatically update the due dates of the other cards?

Hey @Lauren Johnson 👋

I've taken a look at the automations Butler offer on Trello and believe the below screenshot offers as close to what you're looking for as possible...

This set up can be found under rules if you would like to take a look.

Let me know how you get on or if you have any other questions, I'm here to help 😃

All the best,


Hi Laura, 

What trigger category is that under?

Apologies, I completely skipped that part doh!

That's under the trigger category 'Dates' 😃

I don't think this will work. I want a due date automatically added to the other cards based on the date they enter in the first card.

Unfortunately, this may not be a possible at this stage with Trello then. They do have other deadline focused Power-Ups such as Smart Deadlines however I don't think this provides what you are looking for.

You can consider using a checklist with the dependency cards as cardlink items such that when subtask is marked as completed the checklist item is also checked off. 

Had this working for several clients (1) completion of maintenance work (2) delivery of goods for POs.
