Dynamically make an issue start once a predecessor is complete?

If we say an issues is blocked by another issue (or is dependent upon another issue) - can we set the start date of the second activity = the end date of the predecessor?

Hi @karen.loomis  -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

You seem to be asking two different questions with your post title and the question contents:

  1. can we dynamically start an issue once its predecessor has completed?
  2. using issue block links, can we set the start date of an issue based upon the end date (due date?) of the predecessor?

You could do both of these with automation for Jira rules... However for (1) starting an issue automatically when another finishes seems to me "pushing work" onto a team/person rather than letting them know: "this item can be started when you are available".

And for (2), you may want to consider the roadmap feature to see this visually rather than setting the dates with a rule.

Best regards,
