The calendar view was introduced in version 16.1.0 and is very useful for helping project team members keep track of current and upcoming tasks.
It can be displayed by clicking on the icon.
Click on the Filter icon to expose the filter options.
You may find the Assigned Resources filter option is already in place and the value has defaulted to Current User. If this is the case, the filter will display tasks only for the user who is currently logged in.
If you wish to add further resources, update the filter accordingly. In this example, we are going to search for tasks as the logged in user.
Use the arrows on either side of the date period to scroll through the calendar.
You can then further refine your display options by clicking on the View Options button.
Range: Choose how you would like your calendar displayed. Options are Week or Month.
Date: Choose which task data field will drive the way the data is displayed in the calendar. In this example, we will select the Start date of the task.
Sort: When multiple tasks are displayed on the same day, this field is used to choose the order in which tasks are displayed.
Color: Use this fields to color your task cards.
Show Weekend: Toggle this on if you wish to view weekend dates on your calendar.
Once applied, your calendar will display all tasks based on their start date and according to the other options listed above.
Click on the downward facing arrow next to Views in the top right-hand corner and select Save As.
Give your view a name (for example ‘My Task Start Dates’) and click Save.
You will now be able to easily reference information on assigned tasks and their start dates at any time, by using this view.
Conversely, should you wish to view any upcoming tasks that are due for completion, update View Options and set the Date field to Finish.
You will then see a calendar-based view, showing you which tasks are due for completion, based on the date range set.
Again, save your view with an appropriate name.
