Change status automatically


I would like to have the status changed automatically via the date, is that possible? or does anyone have an idea?

I have the following table extract - it is about the fact that with a table filter only the "Current week" and "Next week" are filtered out, i.e. the table is very long, but you only see the two rows. Now I want to automatically change the status on Monday because a new week has started. "Current week" then becomes "Past week" and "Coming week" then becomes "Current week".

Hi @Ives Ziegler ,

As you use the Table Filter macro, I can suggest filtering not by statuses, but by dates.

You may use such flexible date range filters as "today", "1w", "-1w", etc. to show rows with dates compared to the current date. 

Can I take a date from today - 1week? would that work? then it would happen automatically and I wouldn't have to update the filter every week

Yes, it should work: today <-> 1w selects the future week from today, -1w <-> today selects the previous week.

But don't forget to go to the Table Filter macro settings (the Filtration tab) and set the corresponding date format: for 06 Jun 2022 it will be d M yy.

I have set "dd M yy" under the heading "Filtration".
Then under filters' default values I wanted to enter the "today" - how does this have to be entered? there is the same effect with users with @currentuser.........?

Just set the date range filter on the required column with dates and type in the values manually:

The date picker will appear and you'll see that the text values were recognized (don't choose the date from the date picker though, just leave the text value).

Hi @Ives Ziegler 

Welcome to the community! 

Rather than using  Jira Issue status, a better way would be use labels and use Automation for Jira to change the labels based on schedules . You can run the Automation at the start of week to change the affected labels




thank you - with such a solution, I would have to have tickets created!? and then automate them again so that the status is updated.
