Hi @Petar , 

Welcome to the community! 

This cannot be done out of the box, since last transition date is not something we can query. 

But I have seen this use case before, and I would do the following: 

  • Create a date (-time) field called "Last transition" and add it to the needed project
  • Create a rule so that, whenever an issue  all or your selection) is transitioned, said field is filled with current date
  • Create a timed rule that checks for status and said date field with which ever actions you need. 

Hope this helps, let mo know if you run into a problem!

- Tessa
