Use the calendar in the "Content Management" Template in other projects


Hello - I've been testing a few different project templates for an upcoming project. The "Content Management" Template has some great features available in the sidebar - Timeline and Calendar.

I am wondering if there is a way to add these to a standard project - new or existing?

If they are not part of the Jira core features does anyone know if the exact features are available in the marketplace?

Hello @Tim Semple 

Welcome to the community.

The calendar feature you have found is part of the Work Management types of project, as described here:


That feature is not built in to the navigation pane for the Software projects, but you can

1. Add a shortcut to a modified URL for Calendar that includes the project key for your software project; i.e.

2. use the Calendar gadget on a Dashboard and reference your software project or other filter as the source data.

This was very helpful - thanks @Trudy Claspill 

I have also been able to link to the Calendar in the sidebar using the "short cut" feature - just added the URL.

This answer is really helpful ! I was having the same issue and this really helpt me !

Thanks @Trudy Claspill !

Hi Tim - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Those features are only available for Jira Work Management projects and cannot be shared or used with other project types.
