Feature Request: Email-to-Board Due Dates

Trello's Email-to-Board feature is fantastic and almost perfect. However, it is very inconvenient to send an email message to my board, but then having to go back into Trello just to set the due date.


Perhaps Trello could be coded to recognize {date} in the subject line as a due date?

You just need

  • to use a pattern in the subject
  • to create 2 butler rules.

1.In the subject of the email, use a specific pattern  cardname $date , for example.

2. create a 2 rules like this

When a card containing "{* }${*}" is emailed, rename the card to {wildcard1} {wildcard2}

The first rule allows only to trigger the 2nd rule. Because, you can't set a due date just with the email trigger.

when anyone enters a card with a name containing a date, 
set due on the date and remove the matched text
