Hi @MIchael Bloch ,

It's no default feature you are requesting here, but it can be achieved with a few tricks.

What you could do is using the Butler Power-Up for setting up automations in Trello, and convert checklist items into linked cards. Checklist items themselves can not have added trackable due dates, but if you create a card from a checklist item, this is possible.

With the Butler Power-Up, you could then check off the (linked) checklist item, once the card with the due date gets completed.

Does that make sense? - If you want to, I can explain further in Deutsch. :)

Thanks, I think I understand it. i´ll try it :-)

Hi @MIchael Bloch


You might also try our Power-Up, Hello Epics, which lets you break your cards into parent-child cards. It even has a feature that converts checklists to child cards so you can turn your existing checklists into children automatically. It will automatically track progress of the children too. Check it out:


Here's the Power-Up page:
