Recommended Method

The Project Timelines table provides ability to manage:

  • Project Phase start and finish dates

  • Project Milestones

You can optionally edit the End Date OR Duration.

Excel Template Method

  1. Download the Excel Template

  2. Update project ID

  3. Update the fields:

    1. task_type

    2. task_name

    3. start_date

    4. end_date

  4. For milestones, you only need to enter the milestone name and the start_date

  5. Use the Excel Connector to load the data to the project_timelines table

  6. Refresh relevant App datasets

DS Command Method

Probably the easiest way is to use a previous project:

  1. Access Project Timeline

  2. Filter by previous Project

  3. Select All

  4. Use With Selected - Copy

  5. Modify this field: project_id - set to new Project

  6. Manually Edit Data

Editing Tips

  • You should be able to freely edit the Start and End Dates.

  • If you edit the Duration and want to force end date to update, use the Refresh option

  • Milestones - the Task Name must be set to Milestones

  • Design Phases - the Task Type must be set to Phases

  • Total Project - the Task Type must be set to Development, the Task Name should be the project_id, like 55
