I'm working on a project that requires filtering issues by date, but JIRA has so many possible date fields (Created, Sprint Start Date, and Change Date, just to name a few) that it's really hard to know what is what. Here is a list of the date fields that are still frustratingly unfamiliar. Can somebody please explain what each of them mean so that I know which one to use?
Actual Start/End date
Baseline start/end date
Change completion date
Change start/end date
Start Date/End Date
Thank you so much!
Good answer - concise and accurate. I wanted to add the example fields in the main question too:
I know this is an old thread, so I'm hoping something has changed.
Is it possible to have the sprint start and end date columns in the structure automatically calculated based on when the 'Start Sprint' button was clicked plus the default sprint duration?
If I have 10 stories in a new sprint, I don't want to have to update each story individually or update the dates if the story changes sprints.
Additionally, If you have, BigPicture by Softwareplant, it will create and/or leverage both the "Start date" and "End date" custom fields:
