When it comes to managing projects, either remote or in an office, the hardest challenge is for everyone to gain a common understanding of where things are heading.

This becomes more obvious with projects that involve cross-functional teams, where hand-offs can turn into a source for misinterpretations or loss of context.

Sure, Kanban boards help with the status of a task. But knowing when to start working on a task is just as important as knowing when to finish it.

Key features

You can now view all task durations and nail deadlines, thanks to the new Calendar View. Some things you’re able to do:

Click and drag – To add tasks on the calendar, along with their duration. Simple as that!

View recurring tasks – If up until yesterday, recurring tasks would show up only on their due date, you can now view their future occurrence way in advance. Be prepared.

Use cases

The versatility of the calendar view makes it the go-to choice for a lot of teams. Use it to create:

  • Editorial calendars – Brainstorm new blog post topics, publish articles, and analyze publishing frequency. Launch and promotion dates reside in a single place, so in-house content teams can focus on creating quality content, at scale.
