Timeline depended on start date

Hi all,
I would like to know if there is an option to change my timeline automatically with respect on “Start date” change?
I have a “start date” and “duration” column, instead of adjusting a timeline I want to find an option to do it without any actions from my side.
Thanks for answering!

Hi @IlonaK - you would need to use a 3rd party app to manage casting the Start Date + Duration into a Timeline column. This can be easily achieved with General Caster with the following integration:


You would set this up for both the Start Date & Duration columns.

Then use the following as your formula"

CONCATENATE(TEXT(DATEVALUE({item's Start Date}), "YYYY-MM-DD"), "+", TEXT(DATEVALUE({item's Start Date}) + {item's Duration}, "YYYY-MM-DD")) 

Hope this helps!

Hi Mark,
Thank you for the answer, but I wanted to see if there is another option without purchasing additional applications.

@IlonaK - General Caster does have a free tier depending on your usage.

Thanks Mark,
I’ll try it, it’s the only option that provided in monday.com?
