Overview & background

 

The Calendar View will allow you to view tasks with start and end dates on a calendar.

 

How to access the Calendar view

 

To use the Calendar View for tasks on the web version of Fieldwire, you must first switch to it from the standard Priority View.

 

Note: Click on the blue calendar button in the top right corner of the Tasks page.

Tip: You can adjust the Calendar View by selecting the Day, Week, or Month displays. The Month display is automatically selected when first switching to Calendar View.

Start and end dates in tasks

 

If your tasks have Start/End dates, they will appear on the calendar. Their duration is represented by the length of the task tile across the calendar.

Shortcut to adjusting the end date of a task in Calendar View

 

Tip: To adjust the End date of a specific task in Calendar View, hover your cursor over the right-hand edge of the task (the date it is currently set to be completed). The cursor will turn into a right-pointing arrow. Click and drag the task to the date that you wish the new End date to be.

How to add Start / End dates to tasks

 

If you created a task with no start/end dates, it will appear on the right side, under the "Tasks" sidebar. To provide a start and end date, simply drag the task onto the calendar and extend its length of time. The start and end dates will automatically update in the Attributes of the Task.
