How do you automate the creation of a new card in another list from a done card list? Edited

I have a list of done cards in a "completed" tasks list.

When the card is marked done and shifts to the "completed" tasks list, concurrently I would like a new card to be created in "new" tasks list. How do i automate this?

And I have created a custom field "completed date".

The due date in the new card should be +1 year after the "completed date" custom field in the done card.

i.e. if on the done card, the "completed date" is 20 Apr 2019, then the due date in the new card should be 20 Apr 2020. 

Can this be done?

@HSSEQ Thome I'm pretty sure you can't do due date arithmetic using offsets from custom fields using the Butler Power Up.

Here is the Trellinator code to do what you want:

Hey @HSSEQ Thome this should be accomplishable in Butler. Here's an example of a rule I made following what you described.

If you need more granular control than that, you can add additional actions in that rule or definitely check out @Iain Dooley 's suggestion of Trellinator!

@Garrett hey that's good to know that you can do date arithmetic with custom fields in the butler power up! I thought it hadn't made the cut in the move over from the Bot, thanks for clarifying :)
