Copy custom date field from the Epic to the Task

I have a 2-part question:

1. Is there a way to copy a custom date field from an Epic to the Tasks within that Epic?  I need the field within the Tasks to automatically update every time the field is updated in the Epic.

   - I have tried using post functions within the workflow and automation without any success.



2. Is it possible to use automation to generate a date field with:

   - The first business day of the first quarter of a year

   - The first business day of the second quarter of a year

   - The first business day of the third quarter of a year

   - The first business day of the fourth quarter of a year

@Alexandra Astor ,

For the first question about your automation rule, you need to configure a rule like this:


Using branch is the best way to do this.


About your second question.

You can do this automation rule using a Scheduled as a trigger and define a cron expression.

Using cron is not possible get 'business day' but you can get the first day of the first quarter of a year.

This is your cron expression: 0 0 12 1 1/3 ? *


You can find others cron expression using CronMaker:

Hope this helps :)

Thanks for your quick response!  This information is very helpful!  I was able to get the automation for the date copy to work.

Going to test the CRON next.

Thanks again!
