Personal Due Date Reminders via Slack


Apologies if this is somewhere else, but I haven't seen a specific question to address this:

Is it possible to get a slack notification to my personal direct messages at the time a card becomes due (or some degree of time before that)? Currently It looks like two separate steps to set a due date, and then a reminder date via the slack powerup.

Thank you

Hi @Adam Johnson ! Welcome to the community :) potentially setting up a custom reminder using butler automation might work for you? It looks like you can set it up to send a DM.

So you'd need to set up a due date command that looks something like this:

"2 days before a card assigned to me is due at 9:00 am, post message "{enter custom message here}" to slack channel "X".

I'd recommend using variables in your post so you can reference the specific card e.g. {cardname} {cardlink} etc.

Hi Hannah,

Thank you for the response. I explored this option but regrettably it only has the ability to send to slack channels, and not direct message individual users (like me, or watches/assigned folks on the cards)

So unless there is a workaround to bypass that, the setup of that due date command automation will not work as hoped.

Does that make sense?

@Adam Johnson oh strange - it says in the documentation I linked above that you can send DMs.

I haven't tried it out myself, but if that looks like what you're wanting to achieve, and you're not able to set it up, maybe reach out to Trello support directly to see what's happening? 

Definitely looks like the right thing; does not function as it seems it should Guess I'll contact support directly. Thank you!
