Timeline Panel Settings (Legacy)

In configuration tab administrator can define the settings of Timeline Panel.

Timeline Panel Settings page has two sections:

1. Timeline View

2. Events


Timeline View

  • Reuse Agile Sprint period for start/end dates of its issues

    • If task does not have planned start/end dates, then the system will use Agile sprint's start/end dates as start/end dates of a task. 
      This will be applied to all tickets that belong to a sprint.

      • Possible values: checked = turned on, unchecked = turned off

      • Default value = unchecked

    • It is required to perform Refresh of Agile Boards/Sprints and Full Issues Synchronization after turning this feature on.


If "Reuse Agile Sprint period for start/end dates of its issues" setting is turned on then the system works in the following way:

  1. It checks if Planned Start/End dates were explicitly defined for an issue. If yes then it uses them

  2. It checks if an issue belongs to a spring that has Start/End dates. If yes then it will reuse Start/End dates of that sprint

  3. If issue does not belong to any sprint or sprint does not have start/end dates then the issue will appear on the left panel only.
