How to set a Due Date for a List

  1. Select the List you'd like to set a due date for. Make sure you're viewing it in either List or Board view.
  2. Click on the ‘i’ to the left of the desired List name.
  3. Select Set date  to set a due date for your entire List!

Natural Language Processing

When setting a start date or due date, you can either select a specific date on the calendar, or type in your desired date just as you would speak.

Type in "tomorrow at 2 pm", or "next week", and a due date will be set for that time automatically!

Editing and Deleting a Due Date

Just as in setting a due date, you can also edit a due date anywhere it appears.  Just click on the due date and you'll get a drop-down to select a new due date.

To delete a due date, hover your mouse over a due date and an X icon will appear.  Click on the icon and you will delete the due date.

Sorting and Filtering by Due Date

Once you've enabled due dates within a Space, you can utilize them to sort and filter your tasks in List View

Just click on the filter button or select the Due Date  sorting option from the columns shown above your list of tasks!

Due Date Colors

The color of the due date is a great way to tell if a task was closed on time or if it is overdue. Just take a quick glance at the date. Here's a breakdown of what each color means:

No color: Due in the future
Green: Task was closed on-time
Orange: Due today
Red: Overdue

Pro Tip with Calendar View
