Card Due Date Reminders with Trello Butler

Is there a way to set the due date alert on a board so that the actual card is pushed to my email? 


Right now, on my test board, I have a due date alert set for 21 days before the deadline of my cards. I set it so that it pushes the name of the board and a generic message to my inbox e.g. " An Important Deadline Is Coming Up!". 


However, I would like to set the alert so that the contents of the actual card are pushed to my inbox. Each card represents a different deadline within a project and it would be helpful to see the contents of these cards.

Hi @venthpar 

You can do this with a Butler command/rule using the variables found here 

If you use that, it could look something like this in Butler:

Of course, you can add more or take things away in this way, so I've added the link to all the variables in this reply as well, so that you can see exactly what can be done!

Hope this is helpful

If you already have cards in the board that you want to have emailed to you, or to test whether this works or not, simply either remove the due date and re-add it (it won't work for any card on the board that already has a due date set, you'll need to remove it and add it again), or create random cards with due dates to make sure that they're coming over when they should in the way that you want them to

Esme :)

Esme this is helpful, thanks. Do you also know a way to set the reminder within the app (so that a push notification pops up instead of receiving an e-mail)? Thank you.
