Restrict a Checkbox from Getting checked (With out Using Dependencies)

I'm trying to restrict a Done checkbox from getting checked before other boxes are checked first.  My team created a project plan with multiple steps in the process.  Each step has a done checkbox.  I have a formula that fires when a specific box is checked but don't want folks to check that off sooner than they should.  I'm not able to use dependencies because the dates that populate in the start and due date columns do not align with the dates in our project plan.  Any suggestions?


Thank you,
