Card Dates

As time is the most precious resource we added more possibilities to deal with dates on cards.

You can add four types of dates to your KanBo Card:

  1.  Start Date – allows you to indicate a date to start your task
  2.  Due Date – stands for the final term of completing a card
  3.  Card Date – it might be very handy to appoint milestones in your project or any events which appear through completing work in a card
  4.  Reminder – it is a date visible only to the user who creates it.

Card dates are one of Card details. You can find it on the left side inside of a card.

You can appoint an exact time frame to complete work by creating a Start date and a Due date in a card. Then it can be visualized on Gantt Chart view.

Card dates notifications

As the deadline approaches, the information about it will be displayed in card’s and board’s activity stream. If you following the card or the board, you will get notified about it.

Frequency of reminders about the upcoming date:

5 days before 1 day before on time
  Start date
  Due date
  Card date

Reminder is the only date which leaves no trace in activity stream. Only person who set the reminder can see it and can get notified about it.

When a card date is set to the card with informational status role, color of the upcoming date will not be changed to orange. This status symbolizes information, unlike the rest of statuses which indicate stages of work.

At the example above you can see two card dates on the timeline. They are set to two different cards. One of them has an Information status role assigned and the other has an In progress status role assigned.


Follow scheduling cards guide for information about adding, editing and deleting card dates.
