Help with archiving + due date butler automation

Hi there folks!

I have a case that I could use some support:

I need to archive cards that are in a "Done" column for 4 weeks. I thought it was going to be an easy case but I'm missing something...

It doesn't mean that we want to clean the "Done" column each 4 weeks, what we want is that when each single card is moved to this column, it will stay there for 4 weeks before archiving automatically, so each card has its independent "timer".

I try handling it by setting a Due Date +4 week when a card is moved to Done column and then set a rule that automatically archive cards on due date. Is close, but it doesn't work: because then this means that other cards in the rest on the board that happen to have due dates might get archived if the due date arrives...

Is there a way to combine both conditions with the butler? Or other way i'm missing?


Kind regads,

Yes! I knew it couldn't be as complex as I was trying to! Awesome! Thanks!

@Andres de la Torre 

The due date approach has its place when there are cards on the list that need to stay longer - unlike a Done list. 

yes, it makes sense, I'll keep it in mind for future automations and uses of Trello.

Thanks for the support and helpful lesson,
