Add task start and due dates

Start and due dates help give your plan some structure, so that your team knows what needs to happen when.

Select a task to get to its details, and then add a Start date and a Due date.

Set the date fields in task details

Why is my date red?

Due dates are shown in red if the task is overdue.

Red dates show late tasks

In this example, the symbol next to the date shows that the task is In progress In Progress, but its due date has passed. If no symbol is shown, the task has not yet started. Learn more about task progress.
