Each calendar can be sat up independently.


  1. Calendar name.
  2. Calendar content: particular project issues, saved filter results or instant filter (JQL-query) results.
  3. Date-time fields the calendar items will be based on. Each calendar entry should have a start date/date&time and end date/date&time to be displayed within a calendar view. This setting allows you to select the pair of fields with Date Picker or Date-Time Picker type. Adding these fields to issue screens is not necessary. Selecting of Date Pickers will set your issue for the full day within a calendar while Date-Time Pickers will allow you to put issues within precise time frames.

    The Due Date system field is not available for the selection. Changing of this field requires the Schedule Issues project Permissions and that can lead to improper working of Calendar.

    To link your issues to Due Date use the appropriate way to pass the Due Date value to a custom Date Picker or Date-Time Picker field.

  4. Direct link to the calendar (as the Calendar section path doesn't contain the particular selected calendar id).
