Set Relative Timeline let you define a timeline that will be set at a later time (e.g. when triggered by a status change). The timeline is defined relative to the time the trigger fires. With this you can easily set a timeline if the status of a task changes.
When defining the relative start and end dates you can use negative values (in the past) if needed. The app support months, weeks, days, working days and hours as input. Business days definition follows the monday.com standard, which is 5 day per week, weekends excluded. The app reads the weekend setting from your account settings.
The timeline is defined by specifying the start and end time in a number of units (months, weeks, days, working days, hours) before or after the moment the event takes place. As the timeline column in monday.com only support dates without time the definition of hours have only an effect when the trigger fires x hours before midnight.
This app integrates very tightly with the monday.com automations. The app has one integration triggered on item creation. As the app presents itself as an action block in any possible monday.com custom automation you can define any trigger using custom automations. This gives maximum flexibility in defining the trigger and in combining the action with other actions. As with all custom automation a trigger can also be defined only when specific conditions are met.
An example of a configured custom recipe is:
When Stage changes to Stage 1 and only if Status is Approved set this Timeline starting 1 day and ending 8 business days after the trigger fires and move item to Stage 1
