Really excited to finally have the ability to create custom fields with Date information. That said, would love to be able to set a start date similar to the standard date field. And have that information be available in the timeline/ calendar views.
I see us using this for the various “Stages” of a project that might last several days and our sub-tasks are tied up already that I cant use them for this.
If you want start date-end date, why not use two Date fields?
Custom fields historically don’t show up on those views indeed.
Two date fields just seems like a lot of clutter… My thought was to use these for the phases of a job, that are not typically consecutive so breaking the date range up would be helpful.
IE. Phase 1: Sep 3-6 Phase 2: Sep 16-18 Phase 3: Nov 9-12
Having them show up on the timeline would be a must then.
I agree. Some projects need two date ranges and having 3 different date fields is cluttery! Hoping they can add the date range function to the date field as well! It makes it difficult for our team (healthcare and all the observances we have to enter) to have our calendar work for us. Our due date is not a range. Even if we could re-name the due date field that would be helpful!
