Epics - Monthly

Hi, New to JIRA - Wonder if there is a way to create an EPIC that has a start date of 1st of each month for a year - We have a new process that has to start each month and to save time wondered if you can create 1 that appears each month without having to create a new EPIC each month?

Hi @Jason Lane  and welcome to the community.

You could achieve this with automation.  You can use a schedule trigger and action to create a new issue of type epic.
