Problem with repeating cards

Alex Mik January 30, 2023

I am using Card Repeater Power-Up to create cards repeatedly every week. 

what's the problem: When new cards will be created, it will has due date from the parent card.

Example. I have card with due date 1th. I need 2 cards with the due date 10th and 20th. So, I created the rule about repeating every 10 days. And it works. Trello created new cars 10th and 20th, but new cards have due date as 1th. 

How can i fix it?

Hi Alex,

Thanks for reaching out!

You can adjust the due date on repeated cards using a Butler command.

We outline this in our article here: https://support.atlassian.com/trello/docs/using-the-card-repeater-power-up/#Automatically-changing-due-dates-with-Butler

I hope that helps!

All the best,

The automation solution doesn't work very well if you have many different cards with different repeat timeframes -- you'd have to set up too many different rules (and keep the cards on different lists?). I'm not sure how that would be managed. 

I really need the Card Repeater power up to start working again. Can anyone at Trello give an update about that?

Hi Cynthia,

Thanks for the feedback.

The Card Repeater Power-Up should still work for now – are you seeing something different?

With that said, it is recommended that you use automation to set up repeating cards moving forward. We've updated our automation to now allow you to select multiple days of the week, and you can use the "find card" action to specify the card (it won't matter which list the card belongs to).

You can find more information here: https://support.atlassian.com/trello/docs/creating-and-managing-butler-commands/#Multi-day-select-for-scheduled-commands

Please let us know if you have any other questions, and we'll be happy to help.

All the best,
