Can you customize the Structure Gantt Calendar to define different Quarter timeframes?

The company I work for has a fiscal year starting July 1 - June 30. Our Fiscal Year quarters do not align with the default calendar quarters displayed in Structure Gantt. I know you can create custom calendars, but it doesn't seem to support defining quarters. Any help or suggestions?

Hi Andy,

Currently, this is seems not to be possible (at least not in the calendar sense), but if you could describe how you would use such differently defined quarters in Gantt, I may be able to suggest some alternative or file an internal improvement.

Hi Egor,

Here's a screen grab of what I'm talking about. At the top of the Gantt display is the timeline. Anywhere is displays Quarters, it is using Calendar Year Quarters. That becomes confusing to our staff as we heavily use our Fiscal Year Quarters in our planning.

Ideally, we would simply create a custom calendar based on the current JSON supported implementation (https://wiki.almworks.com/display/gantt/Calendars):

{
"week": ...,
"exceptions": ...,
"quarter": //* suggestion *//
}

An acceptable workaround would be to have a configuration option (could be at the Jira Admin level) to disable quarter presentations.

Hi Andy,

Thanks for the clarification. Indeed, currently, quarters are hardcoded rather than part of the calendar. I'll raise this point with the product team.

Is there any update on this request. I have a similar situation. Not being able to set the Fiscal year defeats the purpose of using Plan as it displays incorrect quarter info. Are there any widgets we can install that would allow us to get past this issue?

Hi Vivek,

It may take some time before this change is implemented, but we are not forgetting it altogether. I'll try to post update here when the improvement is ready.

Regards,
Egor

@Egor Tasa _ALM Works_  As a work around, for a phase one solution, if we could set start date on calendar to our company's first day of fiscale weeks, maybe weeks and quarters would properly appear.

I understand that implies scrolling, but way less confusing than the wrong Fiscale Wk and Quarter

Hi Patrice, this would still require some development on our part, so I cannot say that is a workaround. And overhead in this approach may even be more than just changing quarter and week numbers. But this may eventually be the right solution.

Hi, Egor

I find this very confusing. I have 4 projects in WBS Gantt-Chart. We have our fiscal years sets starting in October, so 1Q2021 is actually Oct 2020 - Dec 2020, and we're now in 2Q2021. 3 of my projects are showing Current time in QTR incorrectly as 2Q2020 while the fourth is showing correctly as 1Q2021. I'm not sure where to compare configurations to fix the 3 projects with the incorrect Current time.

Hi, @Wendy Benson.  FYI -- @Egor Tasa _ALM Works_ has left the Atlassian ecosystem. :(

That said, I am afraid WBS Gantt-Chart is a different product from Structure.Gantt, so I am not sure Egor (who worked for the company that makes Structure) could have helped here.  

You may wish to reach out to the good folks from Ricksoft.
