Cannot Change or Remove Due Date

I have a task ticket with a set Due Date.  I want to remove the due date.  Whenever I remove it and save my changes, the due date disappears; however, when I refresh the screen, the due date reappears.

There are no subtasks on this item.

After some tries, I found an easier way:

  • Select date field
  • Backspace
  • Enter

Date stays visible after Backspace but is removed after Enter.

I also just ran into this and filed a bug which has been verified by Atlassian:

Please vote and watch it if you’re interested.


Change the view to old view and then you can remove the due date field. Shame that Atlassian doesn't support removing it in the new experience view as due to the nature of projects being on hold sometimes, we might need to remove it until it's back on.

Hi ! check if the Schedule Issues permission is already set to the correct group and go into the full issue view and click "edit". Does that still fail?

Thanks for your response.  We do not "schedule issues" and this isn't occurring for any of the task of which I am aware.  Is still fails when editing in full issue view.

the schedule issue permission controls the due date

Ah! Ok.  My "schedule issue" permissions are correct.  I am an admin and permissions have been given to the admin role.  Any other ideas?

No, I'd open a support ticket with Atlassian

Thanks again.

You can remove the Due Date by editing the field, inserting a letter, e.g. "a" and then click Enter on keyboard.

it is not working for me....

You are right Meg! Some times works, some others not.

I finally found the right way: click on the field so the date is editable, press "End" on keyboard and then backspace and enter.
