How can I add multiple due dates in Trello card

If i use the custom fields power-up I can add the dates, but they don't seem to be recognised if i then try to filter by due date

You can only have one due date. The fact that you want to add multiple could be a sign that you may need to break down that card into multiple cards for more granular management .

Filtering only works on the core or main due date you assign to a card. I'm curious to know though what these multiple due dates represent. For example, is due date A for the actual task submission/turnaround (e.g. submit a draft), and due date B is for implementation (e.g. publish)?

Francis' suggestion is a great one too—break down the task into smaller ones, and then assign due dates for each. 

Hi, these multiple due dates represent things that need to be done during the course of an annual contract - so they are milestones within a larger journey. Breaking that journey down into separate cards is not practical as each card represents a single piece of content which exists for 12 months, and there are more than 50 pieces of a content live on the site at any time; if each stage for each piece of content had its own card it would become impossible to visualise where a piece of content was in its life cycle. I have added the expiration reminder app to my board, which allows me to create multiple dates within a card with reminders active for each of them so this seems like it might work as a practical workaround. All the info, and the due dates, then remain in a single card.

Glad to know you found a power-up that can do the job for you! I don't usually work on long-term, complex projects so this is insightful.
