is there a smart value that will return the name of the current Month

I am working on scheduling recurring tasks each month in Jira using automation...the task would be create the first business day of the month, Due date the first business day at or after the 15th. these should be able to easily find but I haven't seen anything that would update the Task description to be updated with current months name (ie April). Any ideas? thanks in advance.

Hi Rob,

I didn't test but according to Smart values - date and time functions it should be possible.

Try something like:


MMMM should give you the full month like "April" or "July". 

MMM is for the short notation like "APR" or "JUL". Give it a try :-)

Charlie ....I just stumbled across this as I got your reply...I think this will work. thank you so much for your help on this. I will test and let you know
