Just got back from vacation and missed out on all the exciting updates. Time to quickly catch up before more new features roll out!



Release notes contain following snippet:

I’d managed to find a custom rule trigger for when start date is changed or value removed, and trigger for when custom date field is changed or value removed.

I’d managed to set custom date field value in a rule action.

But I couldn’t set “start date” and could find a trigger neither for when “start day” is approaching or passed (similarly to due date) nor when “custom date field” day is approaching or passed.

Is there gradual rollout of the feature and it hadn’t yet reached my account / organization, or am I expecting too much?



The only new functionality is:

  • Trigger on Start date change or custom date field change
  • Set or clear a custom date field due date

More may be coming but nothing has been promised.



I’d also like to see options for more dynamic date references, vs just being able to select specific calendar dates. E.g., “If [custom date field] is 3 days away, do X.”

Why is that stated in the following form?

Doesn’t it mean that there should be capability to set “Start date”? :slight_smile:

Hi @Myroslav_Opyr, thanks for reaching out and reporting this! I see the wording in the post mentioned “Set start date” and this option is actually not available at the moment. As @lpb mentioned, you can currently create triggers and conditions when the start date is changed. I have gone ahead and updated the post to avoid any confusion!
