Change color of a card after 2 days in status

I need the ability to quickly identify cards that have been in the same status for 2 days. There is an SLA connected to one status and need the information at a glance. 

I looked at Automations, but I could not figure a way to "mark" the cards after a set time passed in a status.

Hi @2bluethumbs ,

I don't think you will be able to set the color of a card using automation. But you should be able to add some label or set some custom field to some specific value (then you can filter these issues easily). Or you can send yourself email notification.

I would use Scheduled trigger for this:

Run every 1 hour JQL search (or more frequently if necessary):

status changed TO "Your status" BEFORE -2d

Then do some action for these issues.

Thank you @Hana Kučerová for your help. As suggested, I setup an automator to add a label.

Although, I don't see an ability to add the label to the card on the board.

It looks like it is not possible with JWM boards. I'm sorry about that. These JWM boards are quite new and hopefully will work similar like JSW boards someday.

Maybe you can create dashboard for you project and filter these issues there? Or subscribe this filter to be notified about these issues periodically?

Hi @2bluethumbs ,

according to Cloud Roadmap improved boards are in the works.
