I can only find a way to see Release Phase Start Dates or End Dates in the Calendar Reports view. I'd like to see the entire multi-day length of the phase represented in the calendar view.
Another use case would be for managing in product campaigns that span multiple days. This would be a way to track what is live when and for how long. This would greatly help visibility and reporting for our product experience team.
The release calendar should allow for a date range for all calendar options available (Activities Initiatives, Master Activities, Schedules, Schedule Phases, and To Do's). This would be helpful for the following reasons: First a release date may not necessary be limited to one day, the release could cover the multiple days. If this could be visualized the teams would be able to identify release conflicts when managing multiple release at one time. Secondly, the Initiative end or start date may not necessary correlate to the release date as may initiative dates go beyond the release date to include production support transition period. So being able to clearly see the release dates is beneficial. Lastly, our company incorporates Freeze periods (multip date ranges) where releases are not allowed. For Example during Month End our corporate Finance team has put freeze periods in place so that they can close the financial book and period without any risk of new releases impacting the system stability. Seeing the freeze periods on a release calendar as a date range would help the teams plan releases.
