Please advise what would be the code for the automation rule: "WHEN Task1 start date is within 7 days, THEN send an alert to Task1 Assignee." Thank you in advance.
You could do this with a scheduler in automation.
Hope this help!
You could change the JQL condition because it sends a comment all day which is wrong because I think you only want to notify once
Its better if you use the Advanced compare condition to check the start date and fire the notification.
