Can Trello notifications be used as task or event reminders? Can you use Trello for active scheduling?
As far as I can see you can enter the due date "due mm/dd/yy" but thats it! You have to look through your cards to notice what is due or overdue.
The Trello Glossary currently says, for Due Dates:
You can add or change a due date for a card by entering 'due mm/dd/[yy]yy' as a comment. A badge with the due date will appear on cards. A yellow badge means it's due tomorrow. A red badge means it's past due.
So, at least the overdue ones should stand out.
The Trello Development Board currently has several items relating to future improvements in Due dates.

I see that Trello have announced the implementation of Due Dates:
In Due Dates v1, you could add a due date to a card by making a comment that says something like "Due 2011-12-04"
In Due Dates v2 (which has now been implemented), you can add due dates using an "Add Due Date" button. You'll also be able to add a due time. You can also remove due dates, and the "Is this item due soon/past due" logic has been improved.
We'll add notifications for upcoming due dates in a future version (Due Dates v3)
This is due for release in the next day or two, according to their Twitter account.
There is a newer feature available as of October 2012.
Today we’re announcing the release of due date notifications. When a card you are subscribed to is 24 hours away from being due, you’ll get a notification in the app and via email. We think this makes due dates even more useful for those folks that rely on them. Hope you love it!
