Hey David

Within Trello, there's not a way to set customized reminders for due dates at this time. The notification you'll get for a due date will be 24 hours in advance.  You can request this as a feature enhancement by sending an email to ''

With that said, you can use Butlerbot, which is an automation tool, to set up a script to allow for customized notifications.

To add custom automation using Butlerbot, follow these steps:

1) Add Butlerbot to your board here:
-- A new list will be created titled "Butler"
2) Add a new card to the Butler list, using the follow text minus the parentheses

(the moment a card is due, post comment "@username} This card is due!")

You can change "the moment" to "two hours, one hour, six hours", however much in advance you want to receive the notification. This will add a comment to the card, mentioning you in the comment, and trigger a notification.

Let me know if you have any further questions about setting this up.

This is possible natively in the web interface. For me, at the moment, it seems to default to whatever the last used value was. Although other times it seems to default to the standard '1 Day before'.

However it does not seem to be possible at all in the iOS interface.

I am currently working on a potential solution to this problem: an app that would allow you to set specific reminders:
