Is there a way to add due dates to Checklist Items?

Mark Guest Nov 07, 2017

I have checklist items on a card that i want to have separate due dates for. Is there anyway to do this? For Example, I have a List Item for Schematic Design. Under that I have a Card for a particular Task. On the Card I have Checklist Items for that Task. I would like to have due dates for each Checklist Item.

Is there a way to do this?

If not can we get this available in an update?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Mark,

Marta here, from Trello Support.

This is a request that we do hear frequently, and it's something we're currently evaluating. I, unfortunately, can't make any promises about when, or if, we'll be able to add this feature, but I'll add your voice to our tracking of the request, and make sure the team knows it's something that would be valuable for you.

If you're curious about how our team decides on what requests we work on, this article gives some insight into that process:

Hi There ! What is the latest on this ? It seems to be a highly desirable enhancement, but have not seen any action on it for a long time.

Ditto. I find myself using Microsoft (*gasp!*) To-Do increasingly because I can create lists, then tasks under each list. These tasks can have due dates, reminders and importance. I'm really only using Trello now because my team still uses it for some collaboration. And if MS ever connects To-Do with Planner, we'll probably switch.

I'd love to stick with Trello but not having due dates on checklists is kind of a deal killer for my preferred project management methods.

With as many Power-Ups and plugins as Trello has, it's odd to me someone somewhere hasn't figured out how to add due dates to checklist items. It's been a year since this was posted...

Bump... due dates for checklists/checklist items in a card would be a key improvement.

Same. This is not a NICE to have. It's a NEED to have...

Most implementations of Trello use a Kanban board approach. The board represents to-do, doing, done/test/review. The card is the project. The checklist is a set of tasks to be done by a team or can express dependencies. The individual item in the checklist is the task.

These individual tasks NEED to be assigned an owner and a due date. Bonus points for adding a due date to a checklist.

As it stands, I have a cards with 30-40 tasks on the "doing" board that have a due date 2-4 weeks in the future.

This makes it hard to track our burn-down/progress toward goal using Trello alone.

If I were a product manager at Trello, I would incorporate these features, then build an in-house tool to visualize progress in a Gantt chart. Right now, I'm using Instagantt for chart visualizations.
