How can I add a start date with the api?



So I'm creating cards on my board with the API and I use the "due date" but I was wondering how to use the start date the same way?


is it possible?

Hello @roboten 

You set the start date the same manner as the due date, by setting the start object to a date:

   "start": "2022-02-01T21:00:00.000Z",
   "due": "2023-01-02T08:56:00.000Z"

You can set it when you create the card, or afterwards by updating the card.

Yes, I know, the start object isn't specifically mentioned in the REST API documentation, but then again, not every single object is; you get this from time to time with REST API documentation.

Chances are, if a user configurable object can be found via a GET, then it most likely can also be set via a POST or an UPDATE :)

Cool! Thanks man!

I'm pretty new to coding and with rest API. So far this has been my experience coding in another system as well - Feels a bit lazy that I would have to guess my way through?
