Blog: Monday Project Management Blog
To keep it short and sweet, the answer is yes, and it’s awesome.
Calendars are a great way to visualize your project in its entirety. They also allow you to easily spot critical tasks and important deadlines without having to trawl through your entire task list.
And we all know that completing critical tasks on time is vital to complete your project on time and keep stakeholders happy.
So if you want to find out more about how to make a calendar with monday.com, and if you can integrate any of your existing calendars, you’ve come to the right place.
In this article, we’re going to take a look at how to create a calendar in monday.com, and what third-party calendars you can integrate with the platform.
How do you create a calendar on monday.com?
Let’s take a look at these in more detail.
#1. Calendar View
Viewing your project in Calendar View enables you to see the bigger picture without getting bogged down by all the individual tasks in your project. So if you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed by a never-ending list of tasks, Calendar View could be a massive help.
It looks like this:
What’s included in the Calendar View?
Here are a few of the features that come with using the Calendar View in your project:
View task details:
In Calendar View, you can quickly and easily see everything you need to know about tasks in your project. All you have to do is click the task in the calendar, and you’ll be able to see the item card. Result!
Filter your calendar display:
With the Calendar View, you can filter your view by adding or removing columns to your calendar. Whether that’s a full monthly calendar with every task or a weekly calendar with outstanding tasks only, you can create a calendar that shows you exactly what you want to see.
If you can’t decide whether you want to use your Calendar View or your Board View, why not use both? With Split View, you can see your calendar and your board at the same time. You lucky things.
Head over to our support page to find out how to add the Calendar View to your project.
#2. Calendar Widget
Unlike Calendar View, the Calendar Widget isn’t limited to just one board. In fact, it’s more like one giant Calendar View for all of the relevant boards in your account.
We know – it sounds like a project manager’s nightmare. All tasks from every project dumped into a calendar.
But don’t worry – similar to the Calendar View, you can filter your Calendar Widget so you don’t have to view everything at once. And everything can be color-coded, so you can easily see which tasks belong to which project.
Now let’s see what else features in the Calendar Widget.
What’s included in the Calendar Widget?
In addition to filtering how you view the Calendar Widget, you also have access to the following features:
Choose your time frame:
With the calendar widget, you have the flexibility to decide what time frame you want to see for your projects. You can choose to view your Calendar by day, week, month – or even your year. Congrats if you managed to read that without singing the Friends theme tune.
So whether you want to view your entire year from January to December, or just Monday to Friday in the upcoming week – monday.com’s got it covered.
View the time of your tasks:
Want to see how long each of your tasks is going to take? With the Calendar Widget, you can. Simply add the ‘Show Hours’ feature to your calendar and you’ll be able to see how long all of your project tasks should take.
