Hi @Josh Velez

Here are some follow-up questions that may help provide context for the community to give ideas, and help you consider how you want to solve the problem.

  1. What problem are you trying to solve and why?
  2. What have you tried thus far?
  3. When you note Start and End Date, do you mean the Start Date and Due Date fields in issues?
  4. When an issue starts before the Start Date, what should happen?
  5. When an issue completes before the Due Date, what should happen?
  6. When an issue is still in progress after the Due Date, what should happen?
  7. When an issue completes after the Due Date, what should happen?
  8. What issue types are you using with these dates, and how do they impact/reflect any parent and child issue types?
  9. How are you representing "dependency" between issues?
  10. What addon tools do you have (if any) from the marketplace?

Best regards,
