How do I make the next recurring task due date show up instead of the green completed task?

Hi, All! 

I have a recurring weekly task on Fridays called "review schedule for upcoming week." When I complete the task on Fridays, the due date does not update to the following Friday. Rather, all I see is the green completed checkmark icon with date I completed the task, and I see this indefinitely.

How do I make recurring task date automatically update to the next time it's due upon completion? 

Thank you in advance for any support! 

Much appreciated,

Hi Steven,

Thanks for reaching out!

If you'd like to set up a recurring Due Date, you'll want to set up a Butler rule.

Here's an example rule:

You can adjust the rule so it only triggers when you complete a specific card's Due Date.

I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any further questions.

All the best,

The Trello Team
