No there is nothing like that. Can you describe your need/use case?

Hi - thanks for reaching out.

The use case is this: each January a board is created to hold accounting tasks for the coming year. Accounting completes the same tasks each year such as make budget, control budget in Q1/Q2/Q3/Q4 and make final accounting. So the idea was that an automation job ran on December 31 to create a board 20XX and add the reaccurring taks to it.

So this seems like an odd approach TBH. What about using an Epic for each year then keeping the same board display swimlanes by epic.

Boards are just a representation of tickets per statuses so we need to figure out what you mean for "automation within a board"
