Calendars help you keep track of what needs to be worked on and when, stay in sync with your team, and visualize your project’s schedule.

Create a Task from Calendars

Create a task from the calendar grid and add it to any classic calendar layer created by you or shared with you.

  1. Select the Calendars tab at the top of the workspace.
  2. Click the date you want to schedule a task for.
  3. In the window that opens:
  • Enter a task title.
  • Select a folder, project or Space to tag the task in. You can select more than one.
  • Select the classic calendar layer to which you want to add the task.
  • Click “Create”.
  • On week/month views, your task is created as a one-day task, scheduled for the date you selected in step 2. On the quarter view, the created task has a 5-day duration and on the year view, the duration is 1 month.

    The calendar layer, to which you added the task, is automatically displayed on the calendar grid (if it was hidden before).

    Reschedule Tasks and Projects on Calendars

    Reschedule or change the duration of tasks and projects on calendars created by you or shared with you.

    Reschedule a Task
