How can I change the default time that Trello sets the on the Due Date ?

Hello, I noticed that Trello auto assigns the time of 12 AM (Midnight) as the default time when I set a Due Date. As a result, my cards are all overdue one minute after midnight. Is there a way to change the default time to another time, lets say 5 PM?

I noticed on some posts online that the default time shown is different for different users so I believe there is a configuration that might be driving this. 

Thanks in advance!...

I'm not sure if there is a setting in Trello that allows you to configure a default due time 🤔 however, I know that Trello uses the last time you set. So if you set a card to be due at 5:00 pm, the time will default to 5:00 pm the next time you set a due date on a card.

Hello Hannah, this isnt the case for me - I must go in and change the time each time i  make a new card. is there no setting for this do you know?

@KOHESION no I don't believe there's a setting for picking the default due time. When I create a new card and set the due date, this is what I see:

So the due time defaults to whatever time was set in the previous card. Does it look different for you?
