    i have been trying all day on the start date column all the new events start on 6/25/2016 and no matter what i do i can not get that date to change,  i can set a different date but as soon as i hit enter it goes right back to the date.  what am i doing wrong?

    Hi Jody, it sounds like you may have a predecessor value in the parent row for these tasks. Try removing the predecessor from the parent row, then change the dates for your tasks.
