If I create a card in Trello that I know the due date for, I have to first create the card and then click on card and enter due date.

Not a big deal, but was wondering if I was missing some shortcut which would allow me to create a card and assign a due date in one step. For example, some other apps, like RememberTheMilk, automatically recognize a date entered in the description as a due date, so a new item can be created with a due date initially.

Can I do something similar in Trello to save a step?

It does not seem possible at the moment.

You can add due date from the board view, by selecting the card and using dshortcut, but I haven't found a way to do it in one step, either. Documentation doesn't mention any way to do that.
