How to make temporary cards?

ZackSY June 6, 2022

I wanted to use the Automation rules to make it so when a card received a label, it would automatically be deleted / moved to another category after a couple of days,

@ZackSY welcome to the community! If you're not worried about due dates, you could make some automation to set a due date of "3 days from now" when a label is added to a card, and then set a Due Date rule that when a card is due it archives it (or moves it to the list you choose)

Thanks! I had thought of something similar but I never really understood it. I am happy that you have helped me ;)

@ZackSY no worries! happy to help! let me know if you have any trouble implementing it!

ZackSY June 6, 2022

Sorry. I can't find any event that detects if it's past it's due date or anything similar like that. I'm also not sure if you meant to set the due date to be for 3 days or it will set the card's due date in 3 days.

@ZackSY Go to Automation --> Rules then look on the side for "Due Date", then click "Create Command", then "trigger"image.png

 

As far as setting the due date, you will need to make a rule that when you add a label, it sets a cards due date to be x days from when you add the label. Like this.

(you can change it to be 2 days, 4 days... whatever number of days you want, but that's the format, just set that part to be whenever you'd like the card to be archived or moved)

Sorry to bother you more but I've tried this (look at screenshots) but the card was never moved.image_2022-06-06_231221848.pngimage_2022-06-06_231248724.png
