If Task A duration changed, how task B/C automatic change by dependency

Ryan.Zhou I'm New Here Jun 04, 2021

Task A schedule 6/1-6/10

Task B will start from A finished, its schedule is 6/11-6/20

Task C will start from B finished, its schedule is 6/21-6/30

If Task A postponed 6/1-6/15

Task B could auto changed 6/15-6/25

Task C could auto change   6/26-7/5

How to make the "auto change" happen?

Hi @Ryan.Zhou  -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Knowing the answers to some follow-up questions may help the community offer you ideas:

  1. What version of Jira Cloud are you using?
  2. How are you representing Task start/finish dates?  (e.g. with Start Date and Due Date fields?)  
  3. How are you representing dependency between Tasks?  (e.g. with issue links)

If we assume you are on Jira Cloud, Standard license, use Start Date and Due Date, and issue links: there isn't anything built-in to automatically update based upon issue dependencies.  Jira isn't like a project management tool specifically built to do that.

There are marketplace addons and more advanced Jira licenses which provide more project management features like what you ask.

As a work-around, you could use automation rules to detect date/status changes in the linked issues and update them accordingly.

Best regards,
