Automate Status from Done to To Do. Is this possible?

Hi All, 

I am new here and have a unique query. 

My organisation is using Jira for work management and the key part is that once a task is completed, we need to have it reviewed in, lets say, two years time. We also have a review date field which is set to 2 years from the date a task is completed. We also want to recycle the task to avoid creating the new tasks every two years for task history.

We have explored to have multiple status but that just mess up the reporting and makes it even more difficult to manage. 

I am wondering if there is a way to implement automation to trigger status to change from Done to To Do with condition of 3 months before the review date. 

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Hi @KP,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

Yes, that is possible. What you need is a scheduled automation that checks if the review date is 90 days out, and if so then transition the issue.

Here is an example, this is a rule I have that checks the due date and if it is 90 days out it adds a comment to the issue.
