How to auto add the same due date in checklist item linked to a card with a due date?


I have four lists which are "Project", "To Do", "Doing", "Done" represented four process in a board.

In "Project" list, there is a main project card with checklist items linked to each task card which are converted into "To Do" list by Butler rules. 

If I move a task card from "To Do" list to "Doing" list, this task card will be added a due date in 5 working days by Butler rules.

How to add the same due date in main project card's checklist item linked to the task card which is added a due date in 5 working days by Butler rules?

Thank you.

You are right about all the capabilities that Butler can do in terms of adding 5 days to the due date of the card you moved. There is currently no action to set due dates on checklistitem except with a CF date. If you want to do it via API, unless you are on Business Class, the due dates will not show on the card item. If this is business critical, we can talk offline.


You have another question to have converted card to take on the due date and assignment of a checklist item.

Tested this based on your requirements :

when a card with a name containing "Do Now!" is added to list "Doing", 
find a card titled "Convert To Card" in list "Investigate",
for each checklist item in a checklist named "ABC",
convert the item to a linked card in list "Done" using pattern "{checklsititemname}",
post to url "<aoi_key>&token=<token>"
with payload "{ "card_id" : "{foundcardidlong}", "new_card_id" : "{newcardidlong}" ,
"checklist_name" : "ABC", "checklistitem_name" : "{newcardlink}" }"
