Card button inexplicably stopped working

Hi - I hope someone can help.

I have a card button that creates a daily to-do list for me by pulling together all the cards with a due date of today into linked items in a check-list.  The title for this to-do list card is generated as "To Do List {date~ M/D/YYYY}.  (This button still works perfectly, and I think the title is the only important piece for my question, but if you need to know more specifics about the list creation button, I can provide those details as well).

Because I occasionally forget to add a card, change a due date, or someone asks me for something during the day that needs to be added to that day's list, I also created a button that adds the open card to the current day's To Do list card's checklist as a linked item.

The following screenshot shows the actions for that button.

At 9:05 AM on January 14th, this button worked.  At 9:50 AM on the same day, I tried to use the button to add another card as a linked item on my To Do list card, and I got the error "I couldn't find a card named "To Do List 1/14/2022"."  I made no changes to either button between the time it worked and the time it didn't.

I tried the button again this morning, and got the same error (except it was "To Do List 1/18/2022"), so it doesn't seem to be just a random one-time glitch.

Does anyone see something I missed that might explain why this no longer works?  Or have any other ideas I could try?

Hey @Leslie Rieger - I can reproduce the issue you're describing, and I'm puzzled as to what's going on. The team's looking into it. I can get it to work without the date variable, so likely some bug crept in that's affecting this.

I'll post an update here once we've figured this out & sent a fix out.

Thank you!  At least now I know I'm not crazy. :)

@Leslie Rieger I think we've figured this one out (and it's not a bug!).

Your button command's date variable includes an extra space, which seems to be trimmed in a bunch of places, like on the front of Trello card, so it's really hard to spot.

I've managed to get your example working, by changing:

To Do List {date~ M/D/YYYY}


To Do List {date~M/D/YYYY}

Note the removed space between "~" and "M".

Could you give that a shot and let me know if that fixes the issue for you too?

That worked! Thank you so much!
