Our latest apps: Sync Subitem Timeline and Set Relative Timeline

The latest addition to our apps for monday.com

Sync Subitem Timeline
The Sync Subitem Timelines app keeps two Date columns (start and end) in sync with a Timeline column all living inside a subitem. This is a subitem version of the Start + End = Timeline app offered by Excellent Team.

There are two integration recipes in this app. One is designed for migration or initial sync (triggered on status change) and another one that synchronizes (triggered on column changes). Both recipes can be configured in the directions “Dates to Timeline” or “Timeline to Dates”. Recipes with different directions cannot be mixed on the same board to prevent building loops.

With this recipe the app keeps the timeline in sync with the start and end date (or vice versa). This will update the timeline automatically when any of the two dates (start and end) changes, or – if the opposite direction is chosen – update two date columns when the timeline changes.

Set Relative Timeline (expected in the marketplace soon)
Set Relative Timeline let you define a timeline that will be set at a later time (e.g. when triggered by a status change). The timeline is defined relative to the time the trigger fires. With this you can easily set a timeline if the status of a task changes.

When defining the relative start and end dates you can use negative values (in the past) if needed. The app support months, weeks, days, working days and hours as input. Business days definition follows the monday.com standard, which is 5 day per week, weekends excluded. The app reads the weekend setting from your account settings.

The timeline is defined by specifying the start and end time in a number of units (months, weeks, days, working days, hours) before or after the moment the event takes place. As the timeline column in monday.com only support dates without time the definition of hours have only an effect when the trigger fires x hours before midnight.

This app integrates very tightly with the monday.com automations. The app has one integration triggered on item creation. As the app presents itself as an action block in any possible monday.com custom automation you can define any trigger using custom automations. This gives maximum flexibility in defining the trigger and in combining the action with other actions. As with all custom automation a trigger can also be defined only when specific conditions are met.

See below for a use case.
