Create due date from a fixed quarterly date

I want to create quarterly boards for the quarterly financial closing (each end of the quarter).

For example the 1st quarter ends on 31/03/YY, the 2nd on 30/06/YY etc...

So the last day of each quarter (date N) is the starting point to derive the due dates for each task.

E.g. task 1 should end at N-5 (so 5 working days before the end of the quarter), task 2 should end at N+10 (10 working days after the end of the quarter).

Is there a way to derive these due dates from the N day (last day of each quarter).  Now we have to set these dates manually which makes it cumbersome.

Hi @Yves De Kimpe ,

Can create 1 butler rule and apply it to all cards!


You can read this article and see whether it works for you or not!

Hi @Yves De Kimpe ,

Welcome to the community!

You can use butler in this case!

These variables:


also accept a syntax in which days or months can be added to or subtracted from the date, e.g.:

{weekdayname-7d} is the weekday name seven days ago,

{isodate+2d} is the date in ISO format two days in the future.

{monthname+3m} is the name of the month three months ahead,

You can also add or subtract working days, e.g.:

{datelong+5wd} is the date in five working days.

Note that {datelong+1wd} is not the next working day, but the date after a working day has passed.

It's a subtle distinction that only matters if the date falls on a weekend: Saturday + 1 working day is Tuesday.

To obtain the next working day, use the following syntax: {datelong+0wd}. To obtain the previous working day, use the following syntax: {datelong-0wd}.

I hope it will help you out!


Thank you for your answer

Seems a bit complicated to me :-)

I don't see what is to be set and where. 

If I have a list with tasks within one card.  How can I have each task to have a due date automatically derived from my end of quarter date?  And do I need to set it for each board again, each quarter?
