Is it possible to use a variable in a list name?

I have a list name that I have to update every day to the current date. ie "Things to Do for August 14"


Is it possible to have the date update with a variable? IE:

"Things to do {monthname} {monthdatenumber}"

If you have Gold and up, you can use a Calender/Scheduled Rule to do make something like:|

Every day at 5am, Rename the list "Things to do {*}" to "Things to do {monthname} {monthdaynumber}"

And just make sure you don't have another list that starts with Things to do. Also double check your Variables.

I am not aware of a solution at the Free level sadly. Due Date and Scheduled Rules are only accessible for Paid. There are ways to get recurring rules by taking advantage of the Card Repeater power-up to trigger it, but renaming lists are only accessible in Board Buttons at the free level.

Thank you!!! This works great.
