Creating repetitive issues might be time-consuming work, especially when done on a daily basis. This automation rule can be used for pre-configuring sub-tasks.
Each time a new task is created, all needed sub-tasks will be created depending on the selected values in a checkbox field.
When to use this automation rule and when to use a workflow post function?
This use case is very useful, if repetitive issues have to be created in several projects that have different workflows. Configuring just one automation rule might then be the easier way to go.
But if this scenario is only necessary for one project and workflow, the Create issue post function would make more sense. In this case you might want to check out our corresponding post function use case.
