Due dates from checklists on calendar?

Is there a way to achieve this?

I manage our projects via cards and enter a checklist of all tasks we need to complete in order to complete that project. Is there a way to see the due dates for those tasks from the checklist on the calendar?

Hi @Alejandro Tejada 

Welcome to the Community!

Are you asking about a 3rd party calendar or the native Calendar PowerUp?

At the moment, the native calendar PowerUp will show all checklist items (at the bottom of the day - after all the cards with a due date), but because advanced checklists are very new, there's no way to make them show up on, say Google Calendar going through the Cronofy PowerUp.

The only problem, is that this only works per board, you can't get a holistic view of all boards. But at the moment, this is the best we have.

The only other thing to maybe suggest, is that when a checklist item is complete, you could convert it to a card?

Esme :)

@Alejandro Tejada based on looking through a few answers to previous replies it seems that calendar works at the card level. I can imagine if asked to find a solution.

  1. Build new board for cards with due days based on item due date. Keep a link by checklist and item name (apparently no id for an item)
  2. Screen Shot 2020-07-05 at 6.48.37 AM.pngWatch for board changes on the original board for updateCheckItem, if same can be found on new board, update the card due date
  3. If none can be found, create a new and so forth.

As I am not business class, I cannot work with due dates on my board. Add me as an observer will allow me to validate whether the above is doable. Will work with someone's 14 day trial ...definitely need some custom fields on the new board and triggers on the original boards.

Based on this very quick evaluation with an observer status on a business class board & team, I am able to see the card checklist details down to the checklist items including the id (...5a01f) and was able through a trigger to see the change in the date and time from Jul 10 to Jul 30.

So on the new board based on checklist items, the due dates can be changed accordingly whenever change is made on the checklist since now I can pinpoint the checklist items, checklist...etc.

Hi, could you please add me to the board, as it is private and I cannot see it?

The discussion is so long ago. The test board had been deleted. 

perhaps you can start a new thread and ask your questions.
