Butler to unarchive a card?

hi all, 


I've got the butler add-on, as a trello gold user.

most of my rules seem to work but one that doesn't seem to action is to unarchive a card 3 days before the due date of the card. 

So I have two rules: 

1: - When I archive the card in question, set the due date as 7 days time

2: - 3 days before a card is due, unarchive the card, uncheck all the items in all the checklists on the card, and move the card to the top of list "This Week" 


Rule 1 is working, 2 isn't. Has anyone got any ideas as to why this might be?


Many thanks,

Difficult to judge what's the issue. - Can you check the command's log and see if there are any error messages coming up?

@Andrew Parker I can confirm that unarchiving a card on due date doesn't work. It'd be a good feature to request, but I have a feeling that the reason it doesn't work is that scheduled actions are cleared when a card is archived.

In the meantime here's some Trellinator commands that will do the same thing:
