Set Date and Time

Setting dates and times for your task in your project can help you to keep track of which tasks are falling behind and which tasks are completed beforehand.

You will also get reminded via in-app notifications or email notifications of upcoming tasks or tasks that are about to be due.

If you switch your List or Sublist to the Timeline view, you can also see your tasks with dates spread out in a horizontal timeline view. It can provide you with a clear overview of when the project starts and ends.
