Change due date when moving card



  • I am in charge of a Product roadmap board.
  • On this board: 1 list = 1 release with a given date
  • In each list I have cards, 1 card = 1 feature, with a due date = release date

What I need:

  • Each time a card (feature) is moved from one list to another, its due date is updated with the date of the release
  • How do we know this date? It could be set in the first card (only card of a list which would not be a feature then) of each list

I tried lot of Butler command, including commands like "find a card titled "Date" or variables like  {triggercardduedate}, but I can't do what I want.


Could you please helps me with this?


Thank you very much!

Hi Sarah,

It sounds like you want to set up an automation that sets a certain due date when a card moves into a list, like the one below:

You would have to set up a rule for each list.
