Getting stat/end dates in separate formula columns from summary timeline column (when timeline is summary on pattern item of subitem timelines)

hi its my first question for monday community :slight_smile:

search through many posts but cannot find right answers.
i have subitems with different timelines and i can see summary on pattern item that looks like timeline but some how it not acts as simple timeline.


i created this suing this function
table

i would like to get start date and end date of summary timeline but it not working. formula {mysubitemtimeline#Start} shows error or acts crazy
like then task status done - shows start date when formula set {mysubitemtimeline#End}. in case of other statuses it show error
maybe you know other ways to extract start dat from this type timelines?

Hi @integreva :wave:

Welcome to the Community!

When rolling up the subitem timelines to the parent item, this rolled up timeline becomes a mirror column, in order to show the summary of the timeline dates.
Currently this is not compatible with the formula column, I’m afraid.

I can definitely appreciate how this would be a useful addition to the platform for yourself, and I’m sure for other teams too, so I would highly recommend opening a thread in our Feature Request section.
Here other users who would also like this added to the platform will be able to upvote the feature!
You can find this here: Feature feedback - monday Community

In the meantime, you could manually add a timeline column to the parent item level and input the dates, although I do completely appreciate this is less than ideal.

Best,
Dani

@Dani Hi Dani, I am currently facing the same issue as him. I wanted to know the start and the end date of the summary of parents item of timeline. Could you help me on that? Thank you

@integreva @Dani Hi! We were able to solve this issue and cast the values from the Summary column into a timeline, @MsquareAutomation helped us with the integromat (make) automations :wink: :slight_smile: :smiling_face:
