I have a card with a due date of today. The task is complete, and we've moved it to our "Done" list.

How can I update the card so that the due date icon is not red implying that it is late while retaining the date for historical reference?

I don't think this is a duplicate. The Possible Duplicate is "how do I change a due date?" whereas this is "how do I mark something "done" while keeping it on my board?" –  Rich Armstrong Sep 21 '11 at 17:06
    
no way this is a dupe. the referenced dupe only answers how to change the date. I don't want to date gone, but to be marked as met instead of late. –  catalpa Sep 21 '11 at 17:15
    
I have flagged it as needing attention from the mods. –  Rich Armstrong Sep 21 '11 at 17:28

Isn't moving it to your "Done" list the signal that it's done? –  Humpton Sep 21 '11 at 18:59

@Humpton it's more about the red visual cue. Yes, it is done based on the list membership. I was hoping I was missing a feature. In a quick scan of the page, the red catches the eye and gives an incorrect initial impression of the state of the card. –  catalpa Sep 22 '11 at 1:15

The improved due dates feature has been implemented.

To clear a due date, click on the card, then click the due date, then click the "Remove" button.

Thanks for the answer and for Trello. It's a great app, and I'm sure it's only going to get better. –  catalpa Sep 22 '11 at 1:18

The owner asked to do this "while retaining the date for historical reference", which I'd also be interested in. Is there any way you think? It would be useful in a number of situations where after finishing the project, you need to go back and look at the time intervals in which you completed the stages of your project. –  Dan Nov 2 '12 at 10:44
    
Same here - and when a date is amended by another user as i've lost my original schedule now the client has amended their dates... –  daniel Crabbe Apr 17 at 8:51

If you have a card with a due date, add a checklist to the card. Even a checklist of one item will do the trick.

When you have completed the checklist item(s), check them off. Once all the checklist items are checked off, the due date icon will turn from red to green, indicating that you have met your deadline.

You can, of course, do this in conjunction with moving the card into a “done” column.

A workaround: change the year to '99' or '2099' but leave the month and day the same, the button will be gray.

While this does change the visual cue and may be a reasonable short term work around. I can't accept putting bad data (invalid due date) as an ultimate solution to the problem. Luckily, the new due data is progressing in the queue at Trello. trello.com/card/board/due-dates-v2/4d5ea62fd76aa1136000000c/… –  catalpa Sep 30 '11 at 4:19

Our team decided to remove members from the card once it goes into the "Done" list. That way it does not appear in anyone's card list, but unlike archiving, it remains in the Done list for future viewing.
