Scheduled Templates app allows creating issues from templates, based on predefined rules. You can schedule a template or run them when needed. Plan all kinds of repeatable tasks and manage recurring company activities at Jira.
Fully integrated within Jira, users can create new issues from the template. Templates can be visible only for the template owner (private templates) or for everyone at your organization (public templates). Tasks based on them are created automatically thanks to scheduling options or manually by simply clicking the Execute button. It is important that templates are not an issue so you do not spam your Jira instance.
Two types of templates: private and public
Scheduling templates using simple scheduler or CRON expression
Possibility to run templates manually

Key benefits of using Scheduled Templates include:
Easy creation process - Do not waste time on creating repeatable tasks over and over again. Define your template using a simple wizard.
Template management - All templates are at your fingertips in the global view.
Reduce the risk of mistake - Make sure all recurring tasks will be created and assigned properly. The chance to forget about some basic information is decreasing.
Schedule your (and others) work - Create private templates which can be used by the author. If you see that your template can help other team members, share it with them by setting it as public.
Forget about forgetting - Use scheduling as a building calendar for future issues. Automate the process of creating periodical issues.
