Creating an Issues "Chain"

dk-qf Apr 07, 2016


is it possible to create an Issues Chain or sequence?

For understanding help:

We have Customers which want that we make a blog post every month for them for 12 months.

Is it possible to make that?

Here is a workaround: you can use label, for example "#CompanyName_blogPost". Then you can easy find it to collect as a blog.

Thank you very much for the fast reply.


But I’m sorry, it seem the information I provided were not sufficient to describe the issues.


Let me try to explain the issues in more clear fashion:


We have a customer where we need to create a blog entry every month.


The goal is not to create a blog entry from an issues in our system but to make an Issues to track the task of „Make a blog entry every month“.


We naturally could create an issues as task every year which we could call „Make a blog entry every month“, but we are asking if it possible to create a sequence of Issues (In this case the better term for issues would be task).


To be more exact: a Monthly returning task of „Making a blog entry„ or „Checking the Server Log“.


You also could say, that we want to make an issues which will be created in a returning fashion – yearly, monthly or daily for example – just that every issues contains the same information (expect the key).


The sequence should only to a defined date or until someone marks it as “done”.


Is that possible?

It seems that you need a custom service to crate respective issues (documentation:

In which Terms do i Need a custom Service? What does it Need to do?

dk-qf Apr 11, 2016

connected series of issues - may is the better term

Maybe linked issues is what you need?

That was already tested and sadly it’s not able of it – if it would be able the issues here wouldn’t have been created.

In a Calendar Application, like the Calendar in Outlook or Gmail, you can create an appointment in a sequence like: Every week on Friday at 9:15 am you check the status of a server.

It’s not like you take the time to add the appointment – on weekly basis, always on Friday at 9:15 am for the next 3 years. You check a checkbox to repeat it weekly and the application is doing it for you. In Outlook for example it called “Series”.

We want to have the same, just for an issues.
