Is there a way to show time spans instead of just due dates in Trello?

I'd like to show start dates and end dates.

Hi Matthew,

 

I would also like to have this in the calendar view. Is that any plan to release this feature. It's tough to see what's currently being worked on when the card only shows up on it's due date. Ideally it would show the full lifecycle of the card during the time it's being processed. Would love to have the ability to set date ranges on the card dates!

This seems like a rather obvious feature that Trello should think about integrating....

Plus one for start dates and end dates on the calendar without having to use Elegantt. It's the only thing keeping me from making a switch to Trello

+1 please! esp for calendering - it's an incredibly simple yet imperative feature - look at google calendar? :-S

So this toppic is from june 2017 and still it is not possible to show a startdate in a card? This is sooo sad!

Hey Michele

You can add start and end dates with the Custom Fields Power-Up for Trello: https://blog.trello.com/trello-custom-fields but those won't integrate as dates within your calendar. There's currently not a way to do that, only a due date.

You could intrgrate a gantt chart to track start and end dates: https://blog.trello.com/automate-gantt-chart-project-roadmap-elegantt-trello

Thanks, Matthew! I forgot to respond to your message, but I did immediately check out and install the Custom Fields Power-Upu you suggested. Appreciate it!

I am blown away that we can't get a full time span in the calendar. That is not acceptable for a calendar!!!!! Any thoughts to do this via API's, some custom development work?

I think, that the problem could be solved by using Planway extension.

You can add start date and end date there. 

It does seem strange that Trello hasn't built this yet. In Sunsama, you can visualize which dates you want to start working on your various Trello cards, but that information isn't visualized as a start date < > end date block in the calendar yet.

This would be a great feature, I'm trying to streamline the use of multiple apps to get similar results and having a start, due date and being able to the span in a calendar would be extremely valuable.

And now it's 2019....  Common Trello....

yes, I waited a long time for this
