Butler automation to set the due date on a card to match the earliest checklist item due date?

Is there any way to use checklist due dates in the Butler automation triggers? Specifically, I want to be able to automatically set a card due on the earliest due date for a checklist item on the card and have the card due date automatically update when the soonest due checklist item does.

@Erica Kennett  Due date on checklist item is only available with Advanced Checklist under Business Class plan. With that said, I have not come across any trigger based on item due dates and definitely not for earliest among them.

Good news I did find this : The date beside the checklist badge is the date of the earliest due of an item in the checklist. I did not test for multiple checklist. I am on a trial for Business Class.

Thank you. I don't think there's a way to use this as a trigger in rules that automatically move cards based on due date, but I'll keep hoping for a future update.
