Issue/Introduction

The Finish [date] value is cutoff in the grid, and the task widget does not seem to properly auto-adjust the width of date columns to show the full date value (rather it cuts off the date values). How can you increase the column width of Finish to show the full date value? 

STEPS TO REPRODUCE: 

  1. Adjust your browser zoom level to 100% or higher
  2. In Settings, ensure your Date Display is set to the first radio option (mmm dd, yyyy versus mm/dd/yy)
  3. Go to a project in Clarity
  4. Ensure there is at least one task created on the project
  5. Click on the Status module
  6. Click Settings and check the check box for Tasks
  7. Click Apply
  8. Go to the Tasks section and view the Start and Finish date values

Expected Results: The full date appears for both the Start and Finish date fields (IE Aug, 31, 2021)

Actual Results: The dates are cut off and display with at least the last 3 digits cut off (IE Aug 31, 2…)
