Profields automation of date fields with now value

Alexander Raymukanov July 28, 2020

I try to make new automation (with automation for jira) with action to set custom Profields field "project start date" from now() value when project created.

But in value I can set only some real date or clear value. And I dont understand how to set now(). Maybe there is some workaround , please advise.

Hi @Alexander Raymukanov , 

I'm Federico Baronti from DEISER's Customer Support. Thank you very much for raising this question in the Atlassian Community and thanks for using Profields with Automation as it is one of our most important integrations at the moment. 

Unfortunately, this integration does not provide this kind of value set at the moment. Our customers have asked us to add this because it is an important setting to add and, because of that, we have added it to our Public and Collaborative backlog: Here you will be able to up-vote this improvement (this will show how interested our customers are about this), share it with other colleagues and even comment on it. Hope you do. 

Also, please, keep in mind that, in case you have any further concerns, our customer support portal is available for you, and we will be able to answer your queries in a timely manner. You can do so right here:

Hope this answers your question. 

Thanks so much and all the best,
