Template Start Date

Hi All!

I'm new to using Trello from a project management perspective and I just cant seem to solve this issue. 

I have a template board set up from projects but when I create a new board with the template it starts with the date it was originally created on instead of todays date. I therefore have to go into the board and manually change all the dates which is time consuming considering the amount of cards on the boards. Is there a way around this please as I started using Trello to make projects more efficient and this is taking up quit a bit of time. 


Thank you! :)

Hi all,


Shortly after posting this I figured it out! 


Create your board from your template and then go to bulk actions. 

Click on the first card and select due date 

Set the due date to todays date ( or whenever you want it to start) and press Change due date. 

All your cards should then follow on from that date! 


Hope this helps anyone else!
