Out-of-the-box calendar reports support multi-day events.
For example, a change request with a Work Start date Monday
and a Work End date Tuesday is displayed on both days when
viewed in a Calendar field. However, when two custom fields
named First Date and Last Date are
used, the same behavior does not occur.
To achieve the multi-day span behavior in a calendar report with custom fields, name
the fields in the following way:
- u_first_date → u_my_start_date
- u_last_date → u_my_end_date
The code looks for an ending field with exactly the same name as the start date
field, except using the word end instead of start. If the custom fields are
My Start Date and My End Date, the
system correctly interprets the meaning of these fields because their names are
exactly the same except for the word start and end.
