Is it possible to automatically add a due date to checklist items based on the due date of the card?

I saw this question pop up a couple of times on the board, but didn't find an answer that suited my specific question.


I have an automation set that a checklist will be added to a card once that card is added to a specific list.

The card will arrive on that list already with a due date so I would like to generate due dates on the checklist item based on the due date of the card.

example due date card is = 31/10/21

checklist item 1 = due date card -6W

checklist item 2 = due date card -4W


Is this possible? I can't seem to find it in the automations.

There is an option to set it based on a CF date with some increment/decrement of periods like days, weeks, months...etc but it does not support the kind of setting the way you have described. The only way I found to do this kind is via http request to an endpoint.

Thanks for the quick response. I will check with our developers to see whats possible

Yes, you probably need to enlist their help.
