Is there a way to set a due date that is recurring each month in a different date format?

I have monthly recurring checklists with due dates. Each month when the card repeats the due dates are the older dates from when I set up the recurring card and I have to go into each item and manually alter the due date for the current month. Is there any way that I can set due dates like this: 5th, 10th, 15th, etc; instead of 5/5/23, 5/10/23, etc?

I am just starting to use trello so I am sure I am not using it to its capacity but my checklists are growing and having to alter each individual item in a list of 30-50 items is tedious. I am also technology challenged so it is very possible that I am doing this the hard way and there is already a fix for this that I just haven't found.

Hi Brandie, 

Our new multi-day select option can be combined with a new “find card” action to help you create scheduled repeating cards. Repeated cards are copies of an original card that reside on the same board. 

I highly recommend having a read here: 
More Power for your scheduled Trello Card Automations 

We also have a Cascade option in the Automations tab so you can apply any actions on all your checklist items like this:

You can add the action to adjust the checklist item's due dates either on the 5th, 10th, 15th of the month:

This is what a sample rule will look like where you can create a trigger when a new checklist (Select checklist name) is added to a card, set action to adjust all the checklist item's due dates either on the 5th, 10th, 15th of the month:

For all things Automations, please have a read through here as well:

I hope I answered your question but I understand that there is a bit of a learning curve here. First time setups might seem too daunting but once you get the hang of it, this will be easier than manually adjusting each and every checklist you have :) Let us know if you have any more questions or if I missed anything here.
