Unable to edit the task due dates in Big Gantt Add on

Hi @Pramodya Gamaethige

Could you please provide a brief description of how you try to change the Due Date? How is End Date mapped in BigGantt Technical Configuration? Thank you!

Hi @Anna-SoftwarePlant  thank you very much for your feedback. I tired to change due date inline initially and it did not work.

So tried adjusting the time bars in the Gantt chart as a workaround and it worked. (When I drag the time bar for a future date the due date is also adjusting. )


P.S : A quick clarification, How do we add our custom fields to Gantt chart columns? I tried to add some custom fields can not see in the column name list.  TIA

Hi @Pramodya Gamaethige

You are welcome! Inline editing of Date field type is currently unavailable in BigGantt. However, we are doing our best to make the plugin more user-friendly. Therefore we are currently working on implementing this feature. 

You can follow the functionality development works in the feature request ticket ONE-12637. Please note that it is best to open it in the incognito tab of your browser

Indeed, if in Jira Administration >> Manage Apps >> BigGantt Technical configuration >> General, you map the End Date to Due Date, then dragging a task will influence Due Date. Here you can find more about mapping. 

You can add a Jira custom field by clicking the cog icon and search for a given column. See my image as a reference.

What type of custom field is the one you try to add?

@Anna-SoftwarePlant  Much thanks for your detailed clarification and looking foraward to see new features. I tried to add my own custom field named dev completed date. Earlier it was not displayed in the list but it is available now. Might be a syncing issue. 

Anyways thanks again for the support.
