Can you drag items to the calendar view?

Hi All - I'm using the calendar "powerup" for my boards, and have created a "tickler file" for each month. It would be helpful to drag and drop my items onto the calendar to plan my day, rather than having to go into each item and add the calendar date. Is it possible to see the lists and the calendar at the same time, then to drag items to the calendar?

I don't believe this is possible unless you could do it through the API. I did see this S.T.O.P board which may be an alternate approach, that way you can still drag and drop items into your day/week/monthly columns (eg. calendar) and can see your week at a glance.

@Rebecca Atkins If you want to automatically add a date when you move a card into a list, you could use the Butler power up, currently accepting beta sign ups:

The command would be something like:

When a card is moved to list "Doing" set due in 3 days

This is the Trellinator code for the same thing:

You can see how to set up Trellinator here:

Yes there is actually! I searched forever for the 'drag and drop cards to calendar' function when i started but then I found the "Planyway" Calendar for Trello and it's AMAZING. Instantly made Trello 10x better. I prefer the Chrome extension version of Planyway, that way I don't have to use one of my power ups for it. But yes you can just drag and drop cards to the calendar at it automatically sets that as their due date too. Just a lifesaver. Can't believe the Google Calendar hasn't copied them yet.
