Along with a calendar name, the creator must select the calendar scope – define which issues should be visible within the calendar.

You can select all issues of a project, issues complying with a saved filter, or issues meeting the JQL-query.

Start & End Fields

This setting defines which issue fields must be taken as timeframes. You can base a calendar on dates or on dates-time.

Fields available in this setting are system and custom Date Pickers and Date Time Pickers. A Jira Admin can create new fields for your needs if required. Besides, Jira Admin can add the fields to issues so users will be able not only to drag issues within the calendar grid but also select dates manually in issues.
