Change all due dates in checklist to next year

We are working on Trello cards for events that happen at our business annually. Each event is a separate card. 

I am trying to create an automation that when a card is moved to a certain list that all of the due dates in all of the checklists are reset to be due in one year later. I am able to do this for the card's main due date, but can not find a way to set the checklists items to be due in one year.  There are options to set the checklist due dates to the next day, the next month, at a later time, but not in a year. 

Any way to do this?

It is possible to change the due date for one item on a checklist forward a year (12 months) "set the item due date in 12 months" with Butler Rules  but not all of the items. It seem like this would be something useful. Is there a way to make this suggestion?


Thank you

@Rui Fernandes 

I saw a post of yours where you outlined a Butler feature to make changes to checlist items, but could not reply on it. I am an event planner with recurring annual events which happen at the same time every year. Presently I have to reset every checklist item in all of my event project plans ahead 12 months so the planning will start & end at the same time. 

I have tried setting up the following Rule: 

"When a card is moved into list "name of list" by anyone, uncheck all of the items in all of the checklists on the card, for each checklist item in a checklist named "Checklist", move the due date to the same day next year."

The problem is it moves the main card's due date to the next year and sometimes multiple years according to the number of checklist items on the card. It will not move the actual checklist item due dates ahead to next year. I have also tried to set this up as a button with no luck.  Additionally I would prefer that it moves the due dates for all items on all checklists on the card, but I've not had luck with that option either. 

Is this possible to set up?

Thank you,

Hi @Nancy Dennis 👋

Welcome to the Community! Whenever I hear the word automation I instantly consider Butler which is Trello's automation tool, however the Power-Up doesn't have quite a large enough scope for this size of automation. 

Unfortunately, you would have to make these changes manually when you move the card in question - you can potentially speed the process up by changing all the dates with a bulk action Power-Up but I recognise this doesn't fulfil the brief you need it to. 

I hope this helps but if you have any other questions just ask away 😃

All the best,
