I am looking to update a custom Date & Time Field based on if a user clicks the "Yes" option in a Checkbox field.
I tried Project Automation but we have the free version and not all features are available.
I thought the alternative may be a scripted custom Date & Time Field that updates when the choice is made?
I have used this code previously when an issue is created but unsure how to modify the code for a checkbox field?
This script shows you how to work with all sorts of custom fields. Note that check-boxes work the same way as multi-select lists!
I think you're probably right about using a scripted field - this would stop the users entering the wrong data into it. With a scripted field, the two tricks you need to know when coding it are 1) Remember to set the output template to the appropriate type - you're calculating a date, so I'd use a date/time template, 2) the value of the scripted field is what the script "returns", you do not have to set a value in the field, just calculate and return it.
Hi @Drishti Maharaj May i know for which event you are trying to update Date Time custom field ?
If you are looking to set field value for Issue Created event then i suggest you use custom Date Time field instead of scripted field and apply scripted post function, it will set value if checkbox is having value "Yes" .
If you are looking to update Date Time field for Issue Updated event then try to apply Scripted Listener, which will set value when user select "Yes" value in checkbox field.
