Setting Due Date for Linked Cards - Butler automation? Edited

Looking for updated Butler rule guidance to facilitate a syncing project. Unable to set due dates for linked cards on different boards to the linking card's due date.

I'm setting up a Master board for one-way syncing. Basically my team is working on a series of boards which I hope to feed into the Master board using Butler automations. So far I've successfully set up dependencies to Add, rename, archive, unarchive, label, unlabel cards. Due date is proving an issue.

Guidance for this type of rule is old, with former Butler commands no longer present (old guidance). 

"when a due date is added to a card in XXXXX, find the card mentioned in the description and set due on the date

Current butler Set Due actions only allows now or specific future times:


Any help is appreciated! Is there a console where I can bypass the above limitations?


Thanks, B

Hi @Bart 

Is there anything in the 'cascade' option? I'm thinking something along the lines of "triggercardduedate"

Could you let me know the first stages of the command, I'll rebuild it and see what I can come up with? Maybe seeing the whole process will enable one of us to be able to come up with something?

Esme :)

Hi @Esme Crutchley  Thanks for poking around -- don't think I'm the first person to try and get Butler/Trello to meet this need.


Triggers for 2 separate rules:

  • when a due date is set on a card
  • when a due date is removed in a card

Action I need help with:

  1. for each card linked in the attachments, 
  2. ?


Perhaps my Trigger or intended goal is flawed. Trying to ensure linked cards have the same Due Date. Setting up a Master and Parent Boards. Master Board only needs 1-way syncing, so I thought Butler would work for this goal.
