when I enter a card name containing a date, set due on the date - minus one day

I am setting some automations for Butler Trello and I found this very useful this rule :

when I enter a card name containing a date, set due on the date


However, I was trying to understand if it is customizable in some way.

I mean: this formula takes the date in the card title and transforms it in due date.

Would it be possible, with Butler, to add a step « decrease the extract date by 1 day » ?

Hey @Giulia De Monte 

I made a tutorial video here for the basic set up of this rule.

But then to customise it further to move the due date back by one day you can use this extra step - "move the due date to the previous day".

Below shows you the full command.

And here is how to find this option

Actions -> Dates - > Move the due date 'to the same day next week' (edit this option to be 'the previous day') As shown below...

Hope that helps! Give me a shout if you get stuck :)
