Rules

  • Require due dates for submitted issues (on-change)

  • Notify assignee about overdue issues (on-change)

Use Case

This workflow requires that every reporter sets a due date for resolving an issue and notifies the assignee when an issue is overdue.

To use this workflow, you should either add a Due Date field to your project or create another date-type field and modify the reference to the Due Date field in the default workflow.

This workflow was originally taken from a submitted request (JT-5998).

The user who submitted this issue wanted to make a field required for all new issues so that it could be used as the basis for a report.

Rules

This workflow supports the following rules:

Title

Description

Require due dates for submitted issues

This rule prevents the creation of an issue unless the due date is set. If the Due Date field is empty, a warning is displayed.

You can easily modify this rule to require values for one or more custom fields in your project. However, for the rule to work properly, the required fields should have the Can be empty setting enabled. For more information, see Manage Fields in Projects.

First, the rule verifies that the issue has not been reported. This means the warning is displayed when the user is still creating the issue or working with an issue draft. If true, it checks for a value in the Due Date field with the required method.

  • If the Due Date field is empty, a warning is displayed. The required field is highlighted. The user cannot create the issue.

  • If the Due Date is set, the user can create the issue.

Notify assignee about overdue issues

This rule checks the value in the Due Date field at 10:00. If the issue is overdue and unassigned, notification is sent to the project owner. If the issue is assigned, notification is sent to the assignee.
