When Status changes to DONE, Remove due date / date

I would like to remove a due date from an item when the status changes to DONE without archiving it. Is that possible? I’m creating multiple automations based on due date, but I don’t want them to affect an item that’s been completed. Thanks.

Hey @jelitots - welcome to the monday.com community! I’d love to learn a little more about your use case. Is this a recurring task that you’d like to continue changing the due date for?

I’m not sure we have exactly what you’re looking for in terms of automations. Would it help to push the due date out by a number of days or to create a new item with these details (minus the due date) instead?

Hello there. I would also love this automation. For me the situation is this: I have a task set with a due date that is synced to my calendar. Once I change the status to Done it moves to the Done group with an automation, but because the due date is still attached to that item, it continues to stay synced to my calendar. I don’t want it to be archived yet or deleted (I want to do that myself as I review the tasks that I have completed), but I don’t want it on my calendar anymore, and it certainly doesn’t need a due date anymore if it’s a task that I completed myself.

I hope that you are able to add this automation soon. It would be quite helpful.

Great suggestion, I have the same issue. Items that are Done but have a date in the future, still show in the google calendar as To be done. This is confusing.

My suggestion for a new automation would be:

When status X change to X, clear column X from this item.

This would be applicable to the Date and People column as wel. Also see When Status changes to DONE, Remove "Assignee" from People and Unassign when issue is set to done

Hi there, is there any news on this? I’d like to be able to remove the ‘due date’ from a job, when it is marked as completed too. If you could update us taht would be great. thanks

@lauralev @Julia-monday.com @automation-team any update on this automation? It seems so trivial to implement and such a big time saver for a lot of users. It also keeps your ‘My week’ and ‘Everything assigned on me’ clean.
