How to use 'date' custom field as a due date trigger?

As with a Due Date trigger such as 'the moment a card is due...', I would like to use the date in a Custom Field to be the trigger for the action.



The moment Custom Field 'End Date' is due, move the card to list 'Ended".


Is this possible?


I currently have a rule: "when custom field "End of Campaign" is set to a date less than 1 hours from now, move the card to the top of list "Ended""


However, I've noticed that this only works at the time I set the custom field date; it won't work for a date set in the future, when that time is reached.

Hi Louis,

I think you will have to create a feature request for this special action you want to have set up. There's currently no action available to achieve this.

Hi Katrin,


Thanks for your response.


I've used a workaround for now using a calendar rule:


every day at 10:00 pm, move each card with custom field "End of Campaign" set to a date less than 1 days from now to list "Ended"


It's not perfect but it serves its purpose. Think I'm going to try and learn enough Javascript to be able to program things like this myself in the future. I hope that's how it works...
