Francis, Donna mentioned a "due date" in her question. Can repeating cards generate a new due date (so that the card shows up on Trello's calendar, for instance?). More specifically, can one create a card at the beginning of a month with a due date of the 15th of each month? Thx...
John - The Card Repeater Power-Up is more for generating cards on certain dates. I don't currently use it in any way I can test while getting you an answer in a reasonable amount of time, but IIRC it always sets it due to the original due date on the card, not a new date relative to the creation date. You can use Butler For Trello, however, to create cards on certain days and have them set with a due date relative to the creation date. For example, creating a card on the 1st and having it due on the 15th. And since Butler acts as a "board member", it works on all Trello platforms.
Don't know if this will be of use to anyone, but I have a card that reminds me to carry out a weekly task. A repeater or recurring due date for each Monday, if you like. I do this weekly but you can do it monthly.
I am also presuming that, like me, you will interact with the card that requires the recurring due date.
When I respond to the card reminder and complete the task I then update the due date to the next week. Simple.
I know it's not automatic but it only takes less than 5 seconds to do and I'm already on the card.
I would love a simple due date repeater but until then this is my quick and simple way to do it.
Oh, and the other thing is that I can easily take into account holidays and bank holidays, so I will set it for the following Tuesday rather than Monday. An automated system wouldn't do this!
Anyway, my little contribution. :)
Thanks, this is what I do now too. My team is not so diligent, and just archive cards with all the checkoffs done. I have created a Template card, and try and remember to go in each Friday and create a new card for the team. But that is 28 cards and takes a bit of time.
So I was hoping for automation with due dates. Thanks everyone!
But the answer to the initial question is a card can be repeated but you have to manual set the due date each time a card is created correct?
I use the Card Repeater and can't seem to find a way for it to automatically create the due date when it creates the card on the date it's supposed to.
