Set Due Date to next available slot

Hi there,


I was wondering. Say there is a card with the same Due Date as you are about to set another card, is it possible for Butler to Adjust the Due Date of that said card automatically? i.e Butler would set the Due Date to the next available slot.


Thanks in advance,

Hey Nelson,

My name is Sal, and welcome to the community!

Yes, you can create automation rules that could consider a few triggers to make the automatic change of the Due Date automatically. For example, you could create a rule that would postpone the Due Date to the next week or month when someone creates a card on the board.

For example, you could create a rule similar to this one:

  • when a due date less than 7 working days from now is set on a card by anyone, set due date the next week on monday

So if someone creates a card with a Due Date of less than 7 working days, the Due Date will be set to Monday next week. And you can continue playing around from here with the rules.
