Can I be notified by email before a task ticket's due date?

    Does the solution proposed above only work with a certain Zendesk tier? I'm not able to create any automations...

    Hey Karina,

    Automations are only available on the Team plan or higher. If you're on Support Essential, you won't have the option to set up custom automations.

    More information on what's available on each plan here: Zendesk Pricing

    Let me know if you have any other questions!

    Here is a screenshot of how I configured my Task Due date to send email notifications. Hope this helps someone else as I had to chat with Zendesk to get this working as the instructions above did not work or allow me to set the (Calendar Greater than ) option. The trick is setting the tag to avoid getting the "Automation could not be updated as: Automation must not run multiple times per ticket. It must have a time-based condition that is only true once (Hours since created is 24) or an action that nullified a condition ("Priority Is High" and an action setting it to "Priority Is Urgent")." error message.

    Does the "local time zone" mean the Agent's local time zone or the entire ZD instance's local time zone?

    Also, is there is a way to "clear out" the due date selection on a Task ticket?

    Hey David!
    If your question is the time zone that the Due Date field is following, it is the account time zone
    Once a date is selected in the Due Date field, you can't clear it out without switching away from ticket type "task".
