If one task is blocked by another (i.e. dependency exists), most project management tools cause the dependent tasks to push if the blocking task changes.
For example, initially Task 2 (Start 5/5, End: 5/7) is blocked by Task 1 (Start 5/2, End 5/4)
If I then push the end date of Task 1 to 5/8, I would expect the Start date of Task 2 to automatically move to 5/9. Is there a way to do that in Jira?
