Uncompleted tasks can't start until today
I' ve just started trying to use Smartsheet as a project planning tool. I have created a Gantt chart for my project, and put in the resources. Where tasks are fully or partly completed I have put in the % Complete figure. The system does not seem to have adjusted the start and finish date of tasks that are not 100% complete with respect to today's date. I.e. if a task is 0% complete, it should not start until today at the earliest, and if it has a duration of 2 days it should finish at the end of tomorrow. If the task is 50% complete it can start at some date in the past, but should not finish until the end of today.
Is there a feature to make these adjustments automatically?
Without this, it seems that Smartsheet is not an adequate tool. Every day I will have to manually adjust all the uncompleted tasks that appear to take place in the past. I have better things to do with my time than this...
