Thank you for reaching out and for that detailed feedback.
I'm sorry for the business impact this has caused and I have reached out to the product team regarding this to get more information and here is an update.
The focus for the Marketing Calendar is to provide marketing teams with a full overview of their day-by-day schedule of launching marketing assets. Historically the Marketing Calendar has only been able to provide visibility over some of the oldest marketing tools, however we have been investing heavily in completely rebuilding Marketing Calendar from the ground up to support the more modern HubSpot infrastructure. This has allowed us, and will allow us to bring the full stack of marketing tools to Calendar, including recently Ads, and coming soon Marketing Events and Marketing Calendars. The consequence of this is that we cannot support some older tools on this new infrastructure, Projects being the only impacted data source for Marketing Calendar.
We also want to confirm that Projects itself isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. It's true that you don’t get a calendar overview of Project Tasks, but the tasks themselves still work. There’s also the All Tasks view in Projects that includes the ability to filter and manage tasks by date too. It should give you a similar level of overview of tasks, filtering down to a specific month/etc and all sorted by due date.
Lastly, we want you to know that we are investing heavily in improving the features included in Marketing Campaigns and Marketing Calendar through the new Marketing Tasks tool. This Tasks feature will continue to evolve measurably beyond where it is today and will be able to support significant features that Projects today cannot.
Have a lovely day,
