How do I set up a project template in Trello?

I want to be able to set up a project template that is a timeline (process), and only change one date (campaign launch date) and then Trello updates the deadline dates accordingly along the timeline.

Each stage of the project is a list. Each list contains cards that are the tasks to be completed. I want all deadline dates to be updated. Is this possible?

I manage multiple projects within Trello that overlap each other depending on the stage of the timeline (process), and the live date.

@Alison_FletcherUnfortunately, Trello doesn't offer this as an in-built feature.

However, I could imagine that this can be created with either the Butler Power-Up or one of the 3rd party tools that have a good selection of Trello actions (like Zapier, Integromat, etc.)

It's a bit of a workflow you have to think through to make it work, but my first guess is that it is possible.

Thanks for your feedback @Katrin Anger

@Alison_Fletcher I've done this for a client using Trellinator. Basically all the dates in the template board have dates that indicate the offset for each task, then when the board is copied the difference from the initial card and today's date is applied as an offset to all the other cards on the board. It's a bit complicated and there are some details that would depend on the specific of your implementation, but it can certainly be done. You can read more about Trellinator here:
