Difference between Due Date and Planned End

Does anyone know the difference between the between Due Date and Planned End?

Or rather in what case using a planned end is advantageous?

Due Date is sufficient enough and nicely integrated with Loging Time, so I expect to use the Due Date as an indicator for developers/other actors for when there issue must be finished/delivered.

Seeing that Planned End is also a stantard field in JIRA and has a 'companion' Planned Start.... what's the additional purpose behind this ?

Hey there, Gregory.

If that is the case, you might wanna contact the plugin vendor if you need this to be addressed soon.

Else, we can also wait for others to share their thoughts about this. I am sure that some users can also provide a good explanation about this. Hope this helps.

Warm regards,

Danial
