Date Variable—"Next Thursday"?

Cof GRS I'm New Here Dec 24, 2021

Hi! Quick question:

Does Trello's Butler Variables allow you to post a date that would be calculated by finding the next nearest specific week day?

For example, let's say today is Thursday, 4/1. I would like to press a board button that automatically creates a card entitled "4/8 Agenda", composed by automatically calculating the date of the next nearest Thursday. Is there a variable command that would work for such a function? Something along the lines of {nextthursday_datenumber}?

Update: I've figured out how to do it so long as it is currently the week previous to the one in which you which to print the calculated date.


Not sure how to get something like this to work no matter if your target date is 1 day or 7 days away...

@Cof GRS 

Try this {date+8d=4wd~MM/DD} ....whether you want +8d or 7d will depends on how you want to treat the case for Thursday.
