Set due date from email

Hi, is there a way to add a due date to a card when emailing to the board?  I have a Google Form that sends an email with the input answers to create a card, but I really need the due date to be included and the documentation I've read for emailing the board doesn't mention it.

If not, is there any other way besides using Zapier/Automate.io to automatically add that?

Does anyone know how to make these old Butlerbot commands work in the new Trello Automation? For example, how is it possible to create this command: "when a card with a description containing a date is emailed into the board, set due on the date"?

 

Thanks.

Hey Heather

You can use Butlerbot

To add custom automation using Butlerbot, follow these steps:

1) Add Butlerbot to your board here: https://www.butlerfortrello.com/dashboard.html
-- A new list will be created titled "Butler"
2) Add a new card to the Butler list, using the following text

when a card with a name containing a date is emailed into the board, set due on the date

or

when a card with a description containing a date is emailed into the board, set due on the date

or

when a card with a name or a description containing a date is emailed into the board, set due on the date
