Avoid creating many custom date fields

Trying to find a way for each issue in a project to be able to track several date/time events not related to the workflow - for example estimated start, planned start, scheduled start, etc. without creating several custom date fields?

Hi @John D Patton,

Actually you can't. For each different date being captured you need to have a different custom field to hold that value. Until now there is no custom field that can hold more than one date.
