Gantt Chart - Is there a way to manually adjust a tasks start date without breaking dependencies ?
I'm creating a project schedule for the design and build of a new restaurant. The only concrete date that I know is the Tender date which is part way through the schedule. I filled out all the tasks and entered in the durations and predecessors for all the tasks. The problem is if I enter the date for Tender it only automatically fills out the rest of the dates for the tasks that come after Tender not the tasks that come before.
So I went to the very first task on the schedule and filled in my best guess at the start date. I was close but the Tender date was still off by a few days. If I try to enter in the correct Tender date manually it just breaks the dependencies.
Am I missing something? Or do I really just have to keep adjusting my start date to get the tender date to land where I want it to?
