At first, the Calendar application should be added to your Jira. Read how to find, add and manage the Cloud apps (Atlassian documentation).

When the app is installed:

  • the user section becomes available (Apps → Calendar)
  • the Calendar gadget becomes available on dashboards

Calendar objects and concepts

(star) The app allows users to create such objects as calendars and switch between them in the user section interface. A user can only browse one calendar at a time.

(blue star) Each calendar displays a scope of issues and events – issues come from Jira projects while an event belongs to a particular calendar in which it was created.

(red star) Issues can be displayed as planned and unplanned. The latest ones are those complying with the calendar scope but having their timing unspecified.
