Linking a Trello due date to a card’s start or end date

In Trello, you can set only one date for a card, called its due date. Planyway lets you set both start and end dates. Depending on your needs, you can choose to link Trello due dates to start dates, end dates or not at all.

To change the linking option, click the icon in the upper-right corner and choose Settings. In the pop-up, choose an option from the “Link due date to” menu.
