Task Start and End Date

Avatar

Level 2

Hi,

Wondering if there is an answer / solution for this:  When setting a Start Date for a Task and setting it to a date (i.e., Sep 9) - is there a way to set the the Due Date to the same Date (i.e., Sep 9), without using 0 Days as the Task Duration?  We had a template setup that was working this way, but now see that using the same template, it is pushing the Due Date to a day later.  Thoughts?  I.e., Start Date = 09/12/22 and Due Date should be 09/12/22 (but system is making the due date 09/13/22)

As far as troubleshooting goes, the easiest place to start is by making sure the start and end times are within what your instance as defined as a day. If for example, your task was set to start at 10AM instead of 9AM, you might end up edging into the next day.

 

You often can't see start / end TIMES unless you create a view that specifies this formatting, or unless you go to the task itself and look in task details for this information.

Thank you so much!  I tried to create a view to show the time, but it isn't available (that I can see), but I could see planned start times on the Task Details.  Thank you again!

I think you'll find that if you select that column in your view and click on the Advanced Options link, it will provide you with a field format dropdown that you can use to select any of the available date+time combinations. For workflows that are constantly looking at the time, we make this view available to the users instead of whatever they get as standard out-of-box views.

Hi there - if I try to use .5 it tells me it's not allowed - is that a system setting?

I've noticed that it doesn't like numbers that start with a decimal.  So, instead of using .5d, use 0.5d and see if that works.
