Main Settings


Along with a calendar name, the creator must select the calendar scope – define which issues should be visible within the calendar.

You can select all issues of a project, issues complying with a saved filter, or issues meeting the JQL-query.

Start & End Fields

This setting defines which issue fields must be taken as timeframes. You can base a calendar on dates or on dates-time.

Fields available in this setting are system and custom Date Pickers and Date Time Pickers. A Jira Admin can create new fields for your needs if required. Besides, Jira Admin can add the fields to issues so users will be able not only to drag issues within the calendar grid but also select dates manually in issues.

⚠️ In previous versions of the app (before 1.12.5), events required a designated start and end time to be displayed properly on the grid. However, for events that only have a single date, this can be cumbersome. For your convenience, you have the option to include the same date field for both the Start Date and End Date. Choosing the same date field for the Start Date and End Date allows you to highlight important events where only one date is relevant, without needing to specify a start and end time. Let's dive into how to make the most of this functionality:

  • Reflecting important events: Use it to mark significant events like release schedules, where only the release date matters for each release.

  • Handling events of unknown duration: It can be used for events where the length or duration is not important.

Note that this is a temporary solution. In the future releases you can expect different date settings which will allow you to choose type of the date the calendar is based on (which include option to display events with Due Date or with Start Date only).
