Start & End date in BigPicture

Hello everyone,
I am new here and maybe someone could tell me did you have such problem with BigPicture.

I have issue with the Start Date and End Date fields are being filled in automatically by the system and when we try to delete the information from the fields, the information is filled in again.

Is there any configuration so that these fields are not filled in automatically?

Hi @Alaine Brown

Welcome to the community!

Let me shed more light on the logic behind the synchronization of Start & End dates. By default, our app requires two points on the timeline (in other words, two dates) to generate a taskbar and determine the start and endpoints. Those points in time are the task's 'Start date" and 'End date' and are stored as 'Start date' and 'End date' custom fields by default. More information you will find in our documentation in the article: Synchronization settings of the Start & End dates.

Please note that our application is in a continuous development process, and we are aware that the possibility of adding tasks with no Start and End date would be beneficial for our clients. Therefore it’s already in our backlog.

I enclose the link to the feature request ticket so you can follow the functionality development: ONE-6654. Please note that it is best to open it in the incognito tab of your browser.

Many thanks @Anna-BigPicturefor explanations!  I am looking forward for a new feature!
