Project schedule 1 minute read
The project schedule is a dedicated project calendar that allows you to see all your project's scheduled tasks in one place.
First, make sure you're in the projects tab. You can access it by clicking "Projects" in the navigation bar.
Then click on the project that you want to view on the Project Dashboard.
Once you're viewing your project, click the "Schedule" link next to "Tasks" in the project header.
The schedule offers two ways to view your tasks: the Days view and the Weeks view.
The Days view gives you a more zoomed-in perspective where tasks appear in the date cells with high level details and assignees will appear in a sidebar on the left. You can click the v beside the user's name to quickly collapse their row of tasks. You can also scroll up and down on the schedule view to see more project members and their tasks.
The Weeks view places more emphasis on deadlines and zooms out to show you a greater span of time on the calendar and fewer task details on the due dates. Tasks are indicated by circles (they'll take on the colour of the project if one has been added) and an abbreviation of the day of the week the task is due will appear at its centre. If the task is complete and you have "Clear Completed Tasks Manually" enabled in your Team settings, a checkmark will appear in the circle's centre. To access the full view of a task, just click the circle and the task pane will open on the right.
You can also quickly clear a due date from a task in the Weeks view by hovering over the task and clicking the small x that appears.
You can choose to sort the Weeks sidebar by owner (the person assigned to complete the task) or by due date. To switch the sort option just click the v next to "Sort by" at the top of the sidebar. Sorting by owner will show the task names sorted below the assignee—you can create more tasks for this user by clicking the New Task link at the bottom of their section.
To move forward or backward on the Days calendar click the arrows on either side of "Today" in the sub-navigation. Clicking "Today" will bring today's date cell into focus. You can also hover on either side of the timeline and click the arrow to move forward or back (depending which side of the timeline you click.) On the Weeks view you can simply scroll left and right to move through time.
You can reassign tasks by dragging them from one assignee's row to another's.You can also quickly change the due dates of tasks by dragging and dropping them into a different date cell. If you want to do this for a date outside of the week you're viewing, just drag the task to the edge of the timeline and hold it there; an arrow indicator will appear and the timeline will jump to the next week. To continue moving forward or backward just hold the task on the edge until you get to the week you want, then drop the task on the appropriate date cell.
If you've set a start and end date for your project, you'll see it subtly highlighted at the top of the timeline across the set dates.
