You can set different constraints for a task:
Start-Date / End-Date Constraints
here you set
- eraliest start-date
- latest start-date
- earliest end-date
- latest end-date
Latest end-date could be called the Deadline for the task.
Setting an eraliest start-date and a latest end-date together, will lock the task. It cannot be moved anymore.
These constraints are displayed as small screws or <> within the task bar.
Must start/end on .. Constraints
Must start or end on
- Any Day
- Working day
- Monday .. Sunday
forces the task to start or end on such a day.
If the selected constraints can't be satisfied, a small exclamation mark icon is displayed with the task-bar.
