A project planning for a project that spans many months (or years) has the tendency to go stale over time. When you plan a task for July 2022 with the information you have today the project planning is accurate. However over time the accuracy of the project planning automatically decreases, deadlines shift, pandemics happen, ships get stuck in the Suez canal.
Right now there is is now no easy way to check if the planning for a task has been kept up to date or see if a task or project needs updating. With the “Last Updated” column you can check this manually but there are not automations that can help us automate this and you can’t aggerate this information into a dashboard.
What I suggest is adding a decay timer column to Monday where you can set a start number [integer] and select the applied decay over a configurable time period. Using this column we can easily and automatically detect tasks that have been scheduled months ago and of which the accuracy is questionable.
