Set due date on new card based on date at end of card title

When creating a new card that contains a date at the end of the title, I'd like to automatically use that date to set the due date field.

I'm sure I had something working like this over a year ago, but I can't remember how I did it.  I've got just a standard account.

It may have been butler, or butler bot, or just standard functionality. In any case I've not found how to do it again!

Hey @pgeorge2001 

I made a video on how to do this here :)

Hope it helps! 


Thanks Dan!  That's exactly what I was looking for.

I knew I'd done this before, and thought I was going mad!!!

I've now subscribed to your channel :)

Looks like a action that I will use more often to manipulate due dates.

Lately there has been a lot of questions on dates. While Butler has options for you to see dates using the selection options in the actions under due dates, to use a date the way you described is not possible. I would be glad to me proven wrong. My way around it is to use Butler HTTP action. 

I wish I could remember how I previously did it! Perhaps it was something in ButlerBot which is not in Butler?
