Hi, @Agnes 

Actually, this may be easily done whin any amount of reminders you need. Recently, I've written a few articles about how you can set this process up: 

If you need, I (or my team) can show you how to set automation reminder whenever you need via SLA Time and Report for Jira add-on. This plugin can definitely help you with your question.

Let me know, if you need more information or help with such settings.

Have a great day.

Hi @Agnes and welcome to the community!

You had me intrigued with the need for weekly updates as I was thinking there has to be a straightforward way to handle this. Here's what I did in my test environment:

  • TRIGGER: Scheduled (Daily)
    • statusCategory != Done AND dueDate >= startOfDay() AND dueDate < startofDay(91d)
  • IF CONDITION (Advanced Compare): Here we check to see if this is the 90 day warning
    • {{now.plusDays(90).jiraDate}}
    • ACTION: Send Email
  • ELSE CONDITION (Advanced Compare):  Here's where we're checking to see if the issue is exactly n weeks from the Due Date.  This formula is evaluating whether it's a whole number.  If it is, send another alert.
    • {{#=}}FLOOR({{now.diff(issue.dueDate).days}}/7){{/}}
    • ACTION: Send Email

Here's a screenshot of what I did. I added variables in here for testing, but they could also be useful for giving dynamic email messages (e.g. You have n weeks remaining until your due date):


Dear @Mark Segall ,
