The gantt view is great for visualizing projects, but is difficult to configure for our use case because we still have to go into task details to add a start date with no end date. I’d love to have a CMD+Click shortcut, or something like that, to add start dates visually in the gantt view. Alternatively, you could have Click be start date only, with the drag interaction activating an end date. Thanks for hearing me out!
Hey, Jeff! You should be able to set the start/end dates of a task by configuring the length of the bars as needed. When creating a new task in gantt view, an initial click on the timeline will set the Start date, and extending the length of the bar to a specific date will set the Due/End date. Similarly, with existing tasks, manually adjusting the bar’s length will update the date attributes – you shouldn’t have to go into the task details to configure these dates.
Is this more of a request to support a shortcut that doesn’t require manual resizing of the gantt bars? Want to be sure that I understand
