[Status: Investigating ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ] Custom field type - Date range

A custom field type date range would be very helpful. Similar to the date range where you today select start date and due date but as a simpler more flexible custom field.ย 

Use case:ย We create a lot of custom fields for tasks where we today need to create two fields, start date and end date. This could be i.e. our clients events, marketing campaigns or other task types where this date don't have anything to do with i.e. our workload. We need to finish the ads for a marketing campaign before the actual campaign starts, so our due date is before the campaign start date. But our designers making the ad, the media buyers and planners needs to know when the actual campaign is and when it is running.

If you could connect this field to the calendar as well that would be very helpful in displaying this information in an orderly manner.ย 

I'm sure such a field would have other use cases as well :)

Hi, Vegard ๐Ÿ™‚ As your suggestion got more than 60 upvotes, I've applied the 'Backburner' status here, which means that the Product team is interested, but no ETAs at the moment. I'll keep you posted and thanks for the idea ๐Ÿ‘

Hi Vegard Strรธnen

Our team is in the process of delivering this functionality soon. It's looking great! We've focused on the campaign launch/end dates use case as part of the requirements and would love to know what you think once it's available. Are you interested in a quick call so we can show it to you and see what you think? Let me know if so. Cheers

Hi Andrew Goddard, I've shared this feedback with the team. At the moment it's not possible to answer if Gantt Chart View could be tied to this or not, since the research is ongoing. We'll make sure to update this thread when we have more information from the Product teamย ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ
