2 Gantt Items: child rows and working backwards
I'm working on a sheet where I want to include sub-tasks via child rows, but the sub tasks do not all start at the same time, nor are they dependent on one another (and happen to be date dependent) but I need dependencies enabled for the sheet. I can't seem to figure out how to have these items start on a date other than the date of the parent row and thus can also not get them to "stick" to the date I need.
Additionally, is there a way to work backwards in building a Gantt? When starting a timeline project, I work backwards from the goal date but can't seem to get the Gantt functionality to let me work backwards (aka, with dependencies enabled, I'd like to just select the end date and then have everything move to the appropriate dates).
