Backwards Scheduling

I've done some research, so I'm pretty sure I already know the answer.  I have a project with a hard completion date.  I would like to have any subtask scheduled backward from the completion date.  Can that be done in Smartsheet?

    Hi,

    There is a Template called: Project with Hard Deadline and Gantt that probably is what you´re looking for.

    Hope that helps!

    Did it work?

    Have a fantastic day!

  • Andree,

    Please enter the link for this Template or information you found. Your comments are useless to everyone searching. This is not the best website for searching and finding correct answers at the top of the list. On these community boards we need to be accurate in the links to point people in the right direction. Thanks.

    Hi,

    At the time of my post, I don't think it was possible to link to the templates but now it is so here you go:

  • This Template is located in the SOLUTION CENTER

    Go To Solution Center

    Enter Search : Project with Hard Deadline

    You will see the Single Project Template Called 

    "Project with Hard Deadline and Gantt"

    Click on it and it will appear in your SmartSheet Collection

    Not much to look at but at least it can start a person in the right direction for entering a Deadline Date and the remainder of items get scheduled using predecessors with SF with task below.
