Can due dates be set to reflect different time zones among the team?

When I set a rule for our team board, the team sees the due dates in my time zone and this can mean they get due dates reading to be on Tuesday instead of Monday. How do I get every card due on the managing member's "Monday" ? If this can't happen, can I have them set rules individually to reflect their time zone? How would these react with each other in practice?

We have also tried to get the "add comment" function to reflect the active member's names, but it also says I put the comment instead of the active member. when we tried to add this rule to other people's butler page through the "import library" function, we ended up with multiple people commenting at every trigger.

Hi Emily,

Sounds like you're using a variable to output the due date of the card onto a comment. Once the date becomes text (and it needs to do so as part of the comment), it will display as text, exactly the same as if you had typed the characters. This means there is no way to change timezones automatically. A good way around this is to output the date in several timezones using , for example:

post comment "This card is due on {cardduedate@EST} (NYC) / {cardduedate@BST} (London) / {cardduedate@Australia/Sydney} (Sydney)"
