Task Constraints

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
  • Weekend
  • Monday .. Sunday

forces the task to start or end on such a day.

Constraint Errors

If the selected constraints can't be satisfied, a small exclamation mark icon is displayed with the task-bar.
