User Section

Find your calendars in Apps → Calendar section.

Here you can browse available calendars, create your own, set them up, and share them with coworkers.

Each calendar is a scope of issues and other events displayed as a specific view based on dates. The calendar section allows you to create your own calendars, use shared ones and switch between them.

Here is an example of the calendar with the main elements of control being marked (left to right):

  • current calendar name and calendars switcher
  • current calendar settings
  • view mode
  • unplanned issues section

Permissions

Any Jira user can create a number of calendars. By default, a new calendar is private, but the owner can share it with groups of users. There are two options:

  • sharing in view mode – users will be able to use calendar but will not have access to settings
  • sharing in edit mode – users will be able also to access settings and also to delete the calendar

Calendar Content

Each calendar displays issues with defined timeframes (at least start). In the calendar settings, you can filter the issues to be displayed – by project, a saved filter, or a custom jql-query.

There are two zones in a calendar:

  • planned issues
  • unplanned issues

The issues that comply with the calendar scope but have their timeframes undefined are stored in the Unplanned Issues section. Use drag-and-drop to put those issues on the calendar.

Planning

Along with putting issues from the Unplanned section to the calendar grid, you can use other planning methods such as:

  • add a new issue directly from the calendar
  • put the existing issue on a particular calendar place via search
  • drag-and-drop an issue or stretch the issue timeframes within the calendar
  • drop the dates by removing an issue from the calendar

Filtering and Coloring

Additional calendar settings allow to dynamically filter issues within a calendar and display them in different colors according to the jql-conditions.
