set a start date for a task

Hello. I want to plan for commencement and expiry date for tasks, and be able to see that in a gantt report.

I can add custom fields for start date but I dont know how to instruct youtrack to interpret it as it should.

Hello, thank you for your post!

When calculated, the Gantt chart builds a particular sequence of issues based on their dependencies and on the estimations. When you set the start date for the chart in the settings, you only set the start date for the entire sequence, while it's not possible to set the start date for any particular issue, unfortunately.

You can learn more about our current Gantt chart implementation here:

Feel free to ask if you have any further questions, I'll be happy to help.
