Is there a way to Edit when a Quarter (Q1, Q2, Q3...) starts in SmartSheet GANTT Tool?

As of right now, I can sort my GANTT charts including QUARTER data on the header. (Q1, Q2, etc.)

But it always assumes that the first Quarter starts in Jan:

My company's Fiscal Year starts in Oct. So, my Q1 is OCT-NOV-DEC.

Anyone knows if there's a way to tell Smartsheet to use my configuration for Quarters instead of the default?

    Although it is not possible to do this automatically, the project settings gear would allow you to relabel the quarters and then display based on that information.

    If my answer helped you, please be sure to mark it as Accepted to help future learners locate the information.

    Awesome! Thanks Colleen!

    To Edit the Quarter to start at a specific month of the year:

    1) With your Gantt Chart opened, click the "EDIT PROJECT SETTINGS" gear icon on the top-right

    2) In the PROJECT SETTINGS window, select "Timeline Display"

    3) In the "Start of fiscal year" drop-down, select the the first month of your fiscal year.

    4) Click OK

    Now your Quarters will align to your fiscal year.
