Calendar and Repeating Cards (Holidays)

I have a board with Calendar and Card Repeater power ups.  How do I add recurring holidays and have them visible when I look ahead in the calendar.  For example and can set "New Year's Day" to repeat on Jan 1 at 12:00 AM, but it will not show up on the calendar until then.  When I look ahead to 2021, 22, etc. I want to see "New Year's Day".

Hi Michael,


That's not really what Trello's Calendar is intended to do; Trello's Calendar shows active cards with a due date, and shows that card on the due date itself.


Even if the card is repeating next year, that next year card doesn't exist yet, so it's not shown on the calendar. The only way to see that card for next year, is for the card itself to already exist, and that's probably not practical on a Trello board, to have an additional list of cards for the future!

Hey Mike!


I have the same problem, but I understand what you say. To be honest, I have a lot of cards to repeat for every weekday and it would be helpful if I could see what tomorrows cards will be.

Also, when there is a holiday on Friday, I have to do that work on Thursday. Can I trigger these cards to somehow? To pretend it is Friday and all the cards that should appear on Friday appear on Thursday.


Thank you.


I've employed a bit of a work around that is proving useful for look ahead view in the main board view, not calendar view. My main board is a conventional kanban with lists from left to right like "Backlog", "This Week", "Today", "Doing", "Done". I've created a new list on the far right after "Done" labeled "Repeating Cards". This serves as the source list of all the repeating cards that are then triggered to show up on "Today" on a given day, date,repeating pattern. I'm using the Sort By Card Name operation in this list and naming conventions in titles like "0: This card repeats every day", "6: This card repeats every Saturday", "--01-01: This card repeats every Jan 1". Basically naming conventions and ASCII sort order can be used to group cards by repeat type, what repeats every day, week, month, year, etc. & provide a list to scroll through to see what is coming at you.
