When you set an event's end date you have several options to choose from:
1. Leave the end date blank
When you leave the end date blank Preceden will display the icon you choose at the event's Start Date:
2. Set the end date to "Present"
Preceden will use the current date and time and automatically keep it updated as time goes by:
3. Choose a specific end date
Using either the date picker or by typing in a date (optionally with a time):
4. Type in a duration
Instead of setting the event's end date to "June 26, 2022" we could have also entered "1 week" as the duration:
If you know how long an event lasts but don't know the exact end date, this can save you time trying to figure out what end date to select.
You can also combine multiple durations together by specifying an end date like 3 weeks 5 days or even 1 year 6 months 5 days 3 hours and Preceden will happily calculate the correct end date for you.
Last but not least, you can select that the event is a dependency, choose the event you want this event to start after, and optionally set the end date or duration:
We usually recommend when using dependencies to set the end date to a duration so that if the earlier event's dates change, the later event is shifted accordingly without changing its duration.
