Can I use Trello as a multi-project deadline tracking tool?

I am an engineer working in the construction fields.  I have developed a spreadsheet tool over the years that tracks multiple project deadlines over 3 month, 3 week and current week for a diverse, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection engineering staff located in multiple offices.  Does anyone know if there is a way I can automate this process using Trello as my base?  Any recommendations?

Hi Dan,

what immediately comes to my mind is setting up one board as a Dashboard, sync cards with their due dates into this Dashboard and have everything monitored from it.

By using the Butler Power-Up, you could set up automations for such a process.

@Katrin Anger Thank you Katrin.  I will play around with that!

@Dan Herzig in addition to Trello's built-in automations available with Butler, I created Trellinator for creating complicated automations for Trello with Google Apps Script:

You can also look at Placker which is an excellent project planning tool based on Trello
