Defeault 'Timeline' start date to first date stated on Task Lists


I’m importing an old project (still ongoing) into Monday. The project started on 01/04/19, however whenever I change my view to “Timeline” it provides todays date. This proves frustrating as I have to scroll back to the beginning of the project timeline as I go along.

Is there anyway to default the view of the timeline to the first start date of task?

Side note, is it possible to add ‘Actual Timeline’ date versus estimated for tasks?

Thank you.
