How to set re-occurring tasks

Hi There!


Is there a way to create a re-occurring task? For example, each month I need to reconcile the books - I would like to move this from in progress to done each month but do not want to have to re-create the task or move it back each time. 


If it is placed in the 'done' swim lane, is there a way to automatically create the same task in the 'to do' lane?

I suggest you read our article about recurring tasks and ways to deal with them.

Hi Veronica - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Here's an article that I wrote that will do exactly that.  :-)

Ηι @Veronica Treto and welcome to the community!

You can do that with jira automation, or with a PF within the workflow of the issue type. E.g. if you have a specific issue type which you want to create, you can setup an automation:

  • Set Trigger: Transition issue to status "done"
  • Condition: If issuetype = you_specific_issue_type
  • Action: Create a new task of the same issue type

Hi @Veronica Treto,

Yes, you can achieve this by using automation and set it to trigger when your task is moved to done. I have a similar one that generates recurring tasks when a new sprint is created and it looks like this:
