Task Start Date
Could you kind folks please add a start date to a task please? Sometimes, a task needs to finished by a certain date but can only start once something else has finished.
That would be great. I don't want to look at tasks before I can actually do them.
Technically, we already support start days, but as much as they will affect your today, 7 days or any date-based view, the task will not disappear within a project otherwise you wouldn't even be able to modify it should the due date be changed.
To set a start date, please use "starting" in the date formula, for example:
- Every day starting in 10 days
- Every Fri starting 14/3
- ev 2nd Mon at 2pm starting 10 Mar
Thanks for your reply. Combersone but it will do just fine!
I'm confused. Why is David talking about recurring tasks?
I've mentioned recurring tasks because these are the ones that already support start days. If you want a task to start then it's a task that takes more than one action (otherwise it's a one-time task).
That said, you can set a task to "every day starting 30 May" or "every Monday starting in 7 days". You can't set a task to "tomorrow starting today".
Thanks for your reply. I understand. What you meant to say is that in general you don't support start date with the exception of recurring tasks.
There are a lot of comments for the "start date suggestion" from some years ago. Are you working on this? Will there be a start date functionality soon?
We're currently not working on this, but we may consider it in the future.
