    This was super-helpful to me. Solved a real issue I had with the timeline in my novel. Thanks so much for being so generous and sharing this approach.

    Is it possible to add durations of scenes? If I add scenes to my storybook, I add durations in minutes and seconds. If I like to know, how long all scenes together are – is there a function in Scrivener 3 to add times?

    Thank you, just what I need to keep track of my novel’s scenes. Wish I had this before I started but will make good use of it in the revision stage.

    Yep, PC. The beta is getting closer to the feature parity, but there are still lots of little things to work out.

    Can any of this be done on Scrivener 2?

    This looks very nice…except when I do it in Scrivener 3 no calendar icon appears, and I am left with a blank column that cannot be filled in and is therefore useless. Any hints for me?

      If you are using the Windows beta, you can only change the date data in the outliner mode – the inspector pane method does not work. Additionally, the calendar icon is not available in either view mode as it is in Mac Scrivener. Those and other bugs have been reported in the Windows beta testing forum concerning the metadata date functions (sorting in the outliner mode is still a work-in-progress, for instance).

          So, I found that you CAN edit and delete the data in a date metadata field in the inspector pane. Right-click in the lower right corner of the box which will bring up a small dialog with edit and clear selections. Definitely a work in progress, but getting closer.
