Jira - Story due date reminders for Sprint closing

Hello Community,

I wanted to know if it was possible to send due date reminders or screen notification to a specific group in Jira when a Sprint is nearing the completion date and Stories inside the Sprint arent completed yet.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Roberto, I'm not sure if there's a way to send out reminders that tag off the sprint dates but if you are using the due date field in the issues themselves (bulk update for all sprint issues)  you could write a JQL query for issues due in x number of days and then subscribe the team to them.  This way they would get a reminder email.



Hi @Peter DeWitt,

Would you be able to show me how such a JQL would look like?


project = <project key> AND duedate >= <date of one day before sprint end> AND issuetype = Story AND status != "Done"

This will show all overdue stories that are not "Done".
