I have the need for a calendar that shows which jira issues are targeted for which dates.
We are transitioning a marketing department from Asana to Jira. In Asana, they can pull up a calendar that shows all the items "due" in a month - so they can see which emails will be sent on which dates. I have added a due date custom field to the issues in their project. Is there a way to create a calendar that will show all the issues on their due date?
You can use the "Jira Issues Calendar" macro, which I believe is bundled with Cloud. This allows you to specify a project or issue filter and a date type (eg. due date, created date) to show on a monthly calendar view.
To access this:
See an example below - this shows:
Or there are apps as Nich mentions which are more powerful, such as Team Calendars for Confluence.
There are quite a few calendar applications for Jira as well as Confluence available in the marketplace to help with this need. https://marketplace.atlassian.com/search?query=calendar%20for%20jira they all have their own features and perks so it may be just a matter of seeing which one fits your needs the best. Some popular ones that I've worked with are Team Calendars for Confluence, and Company Calendar for Jira.
It's kind of an open ended response but I hope this helps.
