Trello- Can I set a recurring Due Date?

I want to set a Trello card to have a due date at the same time each month.

Trello has a Card Repeater addon:


I'm a new user- can you tell me how to install the Add On in the IOS app?

Right now, the only add ons available through the app are the calendar and card voting. You'll have to activate the card repeater from the web interface.

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.

Having the "due date" match the given month that the card is created in is pretty important. It's a nuicance to manually update that date every month.

Thank you for explaining Butler @Devon HendersonDevon Henderson 

@Francis Peixoto How do I see the calendar through the app? (iOS) 

Thank you for mentionin it. I got it. thanks sooo much. To get it you just tap the 3 dot in the top right hand corner and select calendar under power ups. 

@Devon Henderson Can I make a card repeat after a certain amount of time using the butler power up? Also what's a Trello platform?

Sorry that's me testing commenting :)

Hello guys!

Any news about the feature with renewable `due date` each time when Card Repeater recreate the card?

I'm puzzled how Trello/Atlassian still haven't come up with an intuitive way of handling repeating tasks. 

+1 Agreed, I need a repeating task functionality. Asana has it which I will probably use even though I just signed up for Trello Gold, really unfortunate to leave Trello since I really like the interface.

Trello needs to have an ongoing task feature. The card repeater it's not a solution. The card itself needs to be of an ongoing type.

have been trying to add this power up but im unable to, any idea why?

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!

John, the card repeater add on allows you to repeat a card monthly on a specific day. You could create the initial card on the third of the month, but set the repeater to act on the 15th every month.

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.

We need the same feature. I feel it would be very vauable for Trello to provide this feature where we can configure the due date for the new created card through the repeater power up.

Ditto @Raghu Kashyap. I'm a little surprised this still isn't part of the recurring card feature.

Same here: A bit surprised that recurring due dates haven't been solved yet.

Have you guys found any solutions to setting due dates for recurring cards?

Hello every one! Sorry if my question is a little stupid, but where can I find this "Card Repeater"?? The recurring card feature it's essential for me as well. Also, I can't find a way to have the notifications pop up on my iPhone screen, like it does if I set up a task on the iphone's calendar. I have already turned on the notification for Trello App, but still, it is not popping up on my screen. I also can't see the time of my events and meetings, unless I click to enter that specific Card. That is also a very essential feature for me: to be able to visualize the time of different meetings right on the main screen (let's say, the calendar viewing on Trello). 

It's funny because Trello is such a great tool, however, still misses such basic features in my opinion...

Thank you if anyone has an answer to my questions!
