Hi all

I want to create an automation where if I change the due date on a task, I want the start date of the subsequent linked/dependent task's start date to shift automatically and equal the new due date

Thanks

Hi Brian - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Create a rule based on a Field Value Changed trigger. 

Enter any conditions that you want. 

Add a Branch for Linked Issues

Then under the branch add an action for Edit Issue and select the Due Date field. 

In the due date field use the code: {{triggerIssue.duedate}}

Thanks so much John

I created the automation but it seems like the dates visually follow that of the sprint now vs. previous waterfall layout

Ah, yes if it is in a Sprint, it will follow that.

I tried the above but it does not work. I want that if a parent due date changes the dependent tasks move their start/due date accordingly. In the "Edit Issue Field - Due Date" I have entered "{{triggerIssue.duedate}}" Hope you can help
