find the first card linked in the attachments and set the same due date


Hi, I would like to create an automation with which when I create an item, with a member and an due date, in a checklist, a card is automatically created in a specific list with the same name as the item in the checklist, the same member and the same due date. It's possible? Thanks!

Hi @Giuseppe Voci ! Welcome to the community :) are you wanting to copy the due date from the checklist item, or the card? It is currently possible to copy labels and members from the card into the newly generated linked card:

It doesn't look like Butler has incorporated any automation around members and due dates at the checklist item level, however. 

As an alternative, you could add the due date into the checklist item title, and use a rule that will auto-set the due date on the linked card based on the card name like so:

It doesn't solve the part around copying over the member, though, so not ideal. I'd reach out to Trello support directly and see if it's on their roadmap! 

Thank you Hannah, unfortunately this does not solve because I am an event photographer and most of the cards have a date in the title. Unfortunately, I believe it is not currently possible. Thanks again for the help

@Giuseppe Voci ah ok - sorry I couldn't be of more help! Hopefully, Trello will implement more automation options around checklist due dates and members in the future! 

The only thing I can not do is copy the same due date
