@Randolph Abelardo you can only set a due date on a card. What would you like to achieve by setting a due date on a list?

Thanks for the info, @Iain Dooley

Our board is setup in a publication workflow style. I was wondering if there's a way to set deadlines based on phases (in progress, review, published).


My draft should be in "Review" by x due date. 

Anne's article should be in "Published" by y due date.

@Randolph Abelardo Is there a standard offset? For example could you express this as "cards should be in list X for Y days and in list A for B days"?

There's no standard offset, @Iain Dooley. I was hoping there was a way. Thanks, nevertheless.

@Randolph Abelardo well, there may be a way but I still don't really understand what you mean :)

You say you want to have a draft in review by x due date, but isn't that the same as saying it should reside in the list prior to review until a particular due date?

How are these due dates set? Could you not just set the due date on the card to be the date on which it should advance to the next list?
