Initate automation rule as form is opened

Hello, I need to update the due date for a service request when a form is opened as opposed to after a form is submitted.  

For example, a new employee request is due date is two weeks from the date of the form is created and the due date is prefilled when the form is opened.  

Thank you,

Hi @jbolton,

In your case, I would use automation for Jira.

Trigger - issue created

Condition - compare with the issue type or request type

Action - set due date using smart value - {{now.plusDays(14)}}

More information on Automation for Jira and smart values:

Please let me know if that helps.



Thanks Melo, your answer worked!
