I would like something like what is described here Possible to set up a running task (task with start, but no end date)? - and seeing that I cannot find existing monday.com functionality to implement that, I thought of trying to build a monday app.
So, essentially, I basically just want to extend/subclass the Timeline type of column, so that it can be made into a “running task”, e.g. something like this:
So, I’d rather “start” from Timeline as a “base class” somehow, then just extend or “subclass” it. But is that possible in monday apps?
For instance, I cannot see anything in Creating and updating apps which might give a hint on how I would “subclass” Timeline - or even if it is possible.
Then in Quickstart guide, I can see that there is possibility to choose, via the “Features” tab, between: “Board View”, “Account Settings View”, or “Dashboard Widget”. But which of these would an extended Timeline be? The Timeline View and Widget implies that it is a “widget” - but is this “widget” the same as a “Dashboard Widget”?
Finally, I can see that when I try to create an app, and choose “Dashboard Widgets” in “Add features to your app” and click “Let’s go”, I get “Start from a template”, and I get two templates “Quickstart - ReactJS” and “Start from Scratch” - but none of these resemble templates describing the original column types, especially Timeline.
So my questions are:
- Is it possible to create a widget like Timeline at all as a monday app, that is a specification with start and end dates, that gets automatically rendered in a Gantt view?
- If so - is it possible to do that easily, in the sense of starting from the original monday.com Timeline code, and then extending/subclassing it? Or would I have to start from scratch?
Any other hints on how I would proceed with a custom app like this?
