Butler rule - moving a card that has a due date seven days from now

Looking for assistance in why a rule doesn't seem to work.  I hope I'm missing something small here.

I created a list called "Tasks".  The intent is to move cards from the list to another list "upcoming tasks" when a due date is seven days out.  Eventually, I want to pull that list to another called "Due Today" but one step at a time.


The rule:  

when a card in list "Tasks" with a due date due in less than 7 days is added to the board, move the card to the top of list "Upcoming Tasks"

Cards in the Tasks list have various due dates assigned to them but I do have a few that are less than seven days.


Any thoughts?


Thank you.

@Ken Lambert 

This would not trigger since they are existing cards. The operative word is “when”  .

so if I wrote it a different way, using the Due Date Commands:

7 days before a card in list "Tasks" is due, move the card to the top of list "Upcoming Tasks"

Would this work?  Testing with a task set 8 days from now.  I guess I will find out tomorrow.

@milynnus So it looks like my new rule worked.  Going back to the original "when" rule.  If I had the rule down first then created the card would it have worked?

thank you again for your response!
