Timeline view

To schedule a card that already exists in your list, just drag and drop it to the Timeline view.

In the Team mode, when you drag and drop a card to a specific member, the card will be assigned to that person. To create a card that spans several days, stretch it to the left or right by clicking and dragging the edges.
