I have created a custom field called 'Leaving Date' i want to be able to create an automation that sends an email to a specific email address 6 months after this particular leaving date, is this possible and if so how do i compare date fields?
@Jason Selby i would prefer to make it under repeating issue. this will be the best way.
i am also using the same add-on check below
Developer from Automation here.
Yeah this is the same approach we would recommend @Marco Brundel. Create a scheduled rule that runs every day, and use a JQL that returns dates older than 6 months such as in your example "leaving date" <= -26w (ensure only include issue changes is unticked).
After that add your email action and you'll need to pick a field that your leaver email address is stored in (might be a custom user field). The additional step I would make after sending that email, is to put an edit issue action and create and set another custom field to say that the leaver email was sent (could be a yes/no field). That way you can include in your scheduled rule JQL to avoid sending additional emails.
