Calendar

WP Project Manager has a calendar feature for your projects. You can view an interactive calendar view of your projects and tasks. To view the calendar, navigate to WP Admin Dashboard → Project Manager → Calendar

Bars

You will see different bars that indicate the status and duration of the tasks. The longer the duration of a task the more stretched the bar for that task will be.

The Red bars represent the due tasks or outstanding tasks or the tasks that have a starting date but do not have a due date.

The Green bars represent the ongoing tasks or the tasks your team members are working on.

The Blue bars represent the completed tasks.

The light Blue bars represent the milestones you set for the project.

Filtering the Calendar

When you navigate to the calendar, it will show all the tasks for all the projects you create. But you may wish to see only the and tasks for a particular project.

To do so, choose a project from the dropdown list and hit the Filter button in order to see your desired project's tasks.

You can also choose the monthly, weekly and daily options to see the and tasks.

Monthly, Weekly and Daily View

Monthly View: Selecting this option will only show you the tasks on a monthly basis. Use the left single arrow and the right single arrow to navigate to the previous and next months.

Weekly View: Selecting this option will only view the tasks for the weekly basis. Use the left single arrow and the right single arrow to navigate to the previous and next weeks.

Daily View: Selecting this option will show you the tasks on a daily basis. The daily view counts and shows tasks from 12 a.m. to 11 p.m. of a day and so it is a 24-hour-calendar view. Use the left single arrow and the right single arrow to navigate to the previous and next days.

Note that you can use the ‘today‘ button to quickly navigate to the tasks for the current day you are working on. The button remains deactivated if you are already on the day you are working.

Drag and Drop tasks

The dynamic and interactive drag and drop functionality will provide you with a seamless experience. For example, on 19th August, you see that the following “test task” has a start date of 17th August and the due date is 18th August. Thus on 19th August, the task will be due and so it will be red.

If you drag the task and drop it on the next day it will automatically become an outstanding task and the color will also be changed. If the color does not change then consider reloading the page and the color will change on its own.

Edit tasks and create subtasks

If you click on any task a window will pop up on the screen to edit tasks and add subtasks. Assume that we click on the following taskbar:

A pop window for editing the task will appear immediately. From here, you can edit the task name, change the start date and the due date etc. You can even create subtasks and add time log from therein.

If you want to know how to create a subtask then go through this tutorial.

That's all about Project Manager Calendar.
