Trello Android widget - option to add a due date when adding a card


Hi Trello community,

I use the Trello Android widget on the go a lot to jot down tasks that come to mind. A lot of these tasks have a due date so I want to capture a due date when adding a card using the widget, but there's doesn't seem to be an option to do this on the widget. 

The only way I know is add card using the widget, go into the board of the card, locate the card and open it, and then I can select a due date using the calendar. 

Is there a faster / easier way of doing this? 

Does anyone else have this requirement?

For example, task = wedding anniversary with due date of  15 sep 2021.

Hey @JC, this is Eric from the Trello mobile team. 

What you are requesting is currently in testing, so hopefully we should have it released in the next few versions!

I'll be sure to keep you updated once it goes live.

Thanks so much for using the app!

@JC  actually I was mistaken this should be in our next release! 🎉

So, it'll go out to all users on September 27, but will be out to beta users as soon as tomorrow! If you aren't already an android beta user, feel free to join for early access to features like this!

Thanks again.


Awesome Eric, exactly what I required! Good to see Trello is responding to users' feedback and incorporating new features into the widget. Now I can just use the calendar on the widget to select a due date. Thanks!

Hi JC! I haven't tested this out with the mobile app, but maybe this will help?

This command will automatically add due dates to your cards when you enter a temporal indication in the name or description, e.g. tomorrow at 10, next tuesday, april 15, 8/6/19, in two working days, before the last Friday of the month, etc.

Awesome, thanks a lot Hannah! This works on the mobile widget.
