Ever imported data from Excel (or any other data source) containing start and end dates? You probably wondered how to convert the dates into the monday.com Timeline column so it shows nicely in the Timeline view. With this feature you can easily do that.
There are two (NEW) recipes in this app. One is designed for migration (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.
Migration recipe: When this status is set to this value, migrate this start date, this end date and this timeline in the direction choose.
Now simply change the status to the selected value (e.g. “Convert”) and the rest is history. Need to convert 100’s of items? Just select them all and change the status, grab a quick cup of coffee and see what happened.
Synchronization recipe: When this start date, this end date or this timeline changes, synchronize in the direction choose.
With this recipe the app keeps the timeline in sync with the start and end date (or vice versa). This will update the target automatically when any of the two dates (start and end) will change.
