Can I add the date and custom fields data when emailing a card to my Trello board?

Hi there, 

I know that you can email a card to trello board with description, title, labels etc but is there a way to include the date you want the card to be set to and also enter Custom field data into the card from emailing it? Otherwise, you have to email the card to the board, then find the card and enter the date and custom field information.

Hi Jon, welcome to the Atlassian community!

I hope you're enjoying Trello!

There isn't an easy way to fill the Custom Fields and due date as there is for description and labels, but there's a way you can reach the result using Automation and wildcards.

You can put the custom field and date in the description and set a rule to fill in this information on the card. Here's an example:

I created a text Custom Field named Test1 and a date Custom Field named Test2, then I created these rules:

when a card with a description containing "Test1: {*}" is added to the board, set custom field "Test1" to "{wildcard1}"
when a card with a description containing "Test2: {*}" is added to the board, set custom field "Test2" to "{wildcard1}", and set due date on the date in custom field "Test2"

When I send an email to the board with the description containing "Test1: Hi" and "Test2: 03/17/2023" the fields are going to be filled and the due date will be set.

Let me know if you have any questions.
