Can a date in a list name set the due date in the list cards? Edited

I'm trying to write a rule so that when I enter a date after some text in a list name, the due dates for all the cards change to that date? Is that possible? Maybe with a variable? If so, I'll need some handholding to figure out how to use/enter that variable :) 

Context - I have a board that I rollforward each month - recycling the same cards, so I'd like to push the due dates forward, but it's not the same calendar date every month, it's the same number working day. So I'd like to enter the date once (in the list name) and have the card due dates update automatically.

If you want to move the due date of every single card of the board by a fixed amount of working days. Its probably simpler to do this with a Card Button, and avoid trying to figure out how to convert from text to date entirely. Or how to set an arbitrary due date at all (probably involves shenanigans with custom fields)


The last two commands are just for clean-up purposes. You could omit them and just delete the TempList checklist manually as well.

@Vongsawat that's a neat trick collecting all the cards into a list and then using "for each card linked from an item ... "

Its what gets me through the dismal amount of commands available to Board Buttons. Just make everything a Card Button. Better yet, you get access to all the filters when you're Collect-ing, so you can do all sorts of exclusions or shenanigans.

Thank you! I'll get working on testing this ASAP :)
