Create a planning calendar based on month-year only (yyyy-mm) RRS feed

  • Question

  • How can you build an enterprise custom field that is a yyyy-mm for the purpose of "planned go-live date". But this field should then actually be able to be mapped into a calendar display.

    We were thinking about a enterprise custom field and the lookup table being the values like 2016-02, 2016-03, etc. but then the problem is that these are text fields and later on can't be mapped into a calendar display.

    Any thoughts?

  • Hi,

    Unfortunately you have only those 2 choices: either you use a date custom field with a calendar display and you have to use a dd-mm-yyyy format, or you use a text custom field with no calendar display to have the format mm-yyyy. 

    Otherwise you have to code and integrate a custom control.

    Hope this helps,
