Use Cases

Potential uses for dates include:

Setting Project Start and End Dates

Dates allow establishing defined time periods for project work. Setting target start and end dates provides clarity on expected time investments, ensures alignment with other organizational initiatives, and aids in resource planning and allocation.

Defining Task and Milestone Deadlines

Attaching due dates to tasks and milestones enables tracking of timely completion. Setting deadlines creates accountability, allows prioritization, and helps monitor overall project progress.

Tracking Process Duration

By capturing start and end times associated with process steps, duration can be calculated to analyze cycle efficiency. Understanding activity time requirements aids optimization.

Analyzing Cycle Times and Bottlenecks

Comparing stage durations at scale identifies patterns, variances and bottlenecks. Date information fuels data-driven improvement of workflows and operations.

Scheduling Events, Meetings and Appointments

Dates aid appointment setting and calendar integration. Shared visibility of scheduled events and meetings coordinates availability and facilitates attendance.

Establishing Timelines and Roadmaps

Milestone dates underpin project plans, timelines and roadmaps. Assigning target dates to key stages plots execution trajectories and conveys objectives.
