Adding dates to cards

You can set dates and a time for when a card is "due". When a "start date" is set, a badge with the start date will appear on the card. When a "due date" is set, the badge with the due date is displayed on the card. When both a start date and a due date are set, you'll see a badge with a date range on the front of the card.

The color of the badge has the following meanings:

Adding a start date

You can add a start date to a card by checking the "Start Date" box and selecting the date. This can be useful for creating full-day events or adding a range of dates to a card. Start dates will also be reflected in our Calendar View and Timeline View.

Marking a due date as complete

You can click the checkbox next to the date to mark it as complete and turn the badge from red to green. You can undo mark the date as incomplete by unchecking the box, returning the badge to red. This will also add a strikethrough on the card on the Calendar Power-up

Notifications

Archived Cards: When a card is archived, notifications for actions related to it will not be sent. This includes due dates. For example, a card set to be due in 3 days is archived today. In 3 days, no notification will be sent for the card being due.

When you are watching a card or are a member of the card, you will receive a notification 24 hours before the card is due by default. You can change the reminder time inside the date picker.
