Using dates and day counts together

Is there any way to use both calendar dates and day counts? For instance, writing about someone being held captive for several years, I go by dates but would like to be able to also easily know how many days from the kidnapping. Such as - January 4, 2018 (Day 87).

Hi, Unfortunately at the moment there is no way to display both type of dates (absolute and relative) on the timeline at the same time. It is something we will add to our list of possible features to add in the future. Jess

On a similar note, is it possible to see relative times within a nested event, without relying on setting up explicit offsets? So, you might have a murder mystery where the mystery is a parent event and the murder kicks it off at 5pm on July 28th. The next event is the corpse being found at 8pm on the same day, but when you have the murder mystery event open you can see it's been 3 hours since the start.

Hi, No unfortunately this isn't possible either at this time. Jess
