Trello: I want to be able to show the length of projects in calendar form. Is this possible?


I would like to be able to assign a number of days/weeks to a task, so that when a task is moved into a doing list, my calendar will show how long my team members are booked out working on existing projects and where there is availability for additional projects.


Is there a way, paid or free to do this?


Many thanks for your ideas!

There's no default way to assign effort or duration to a task. You can only set due date and time.

Scrum/Kanban methodology posits that resources are self-sufficient enough to manage their own time based on set milestones.

You can probably use custom fields to set those metadata points, but they won't be used by the calendar power-up.

There are scrum power-ups available that track effort and provide dashboards with velocity/capacity management at a sprint/timebox level.
