Is there a way to sort cards on a list by the due dates on the checklist?

Hi all -- I noticed that when I sort cards by due date, they sort by the final due date on the entire card. 


However, I'd like my cards in a list to sort by the soonest upcoming due date on the check list of from all the cards. 


For instance:

Card A is due on September 30th

Card B is due on September 20th 


Card A has checklist items that are due on September 7th, September 15th, and September 22nd. 

Card B has checklist items items due on September 9th, 11th, and 17th.


Right now, Trello will sort-by-date to put Card B on the top of the list because the entire card is due on September 20th, which occurs sooner than the September 30th due date on Card A. 


However, I'd like Card A to show up at the top of the list first, because it has a checklist item due on September 7th, sooner than the soonest due checklist items of Card A (September 9th). 


Any way to make this possible? Thanks!

It doesn't look like there's an easy way to do it. Maybe there's a workaround or alternative option though! What's the need to have your lists sorted in that way? Are you looking for visibility on when work needs to start for each check item?
