Constraint Types in Gantt View

Requesting the ability to use constraint types in a project (Gantt view), similar to the options in MS Project:

As Late as Possible

As Soon as Possible

Finish No Earlier Than

Finish No Later Than

Must Finish On

Must Start On

Start No Earlier Than

Start No Later Than

Thanks for sharing these ideas and feedback. We are exploring how we evolve the Gantt View and associated dependency management capabilities in the future to better support project management industry standards. Please continue to share any additional details or examples. Thanks!

    Out team manages a comprehensive schedule listing 30 or more projects. It tracks the progress on hundreds of items through our fabrication shop which consists of nine or more departments that all have a hand in producing the items. Each project has shipping deadlines. When deadlines are linked using dependencies, a change of a scheduled date in its predecessors automatically changes the deadline date. Without some kind of constraint on the deadline, it's too easy to mistakenly extend an item's shipping date inadvertently. While all the constraints listed in the original post would be great, I'd be happy if we could at least click a checkbox that would trigger a warning to the user that the pending date change would alter the date a the flagged task line.

  • Fully support this request. The lack of this functionality, especially "finish no later than" will likely require that we stop our subscription and move to another platform. It's critical for our projects that certain milestones have locked in dates that help shape the overall project plan AROUND them.

  • It will be good to have the option to set firm constraints dates (deadlines) in the Gantchart so when you start adding duration for tasks, timelines do not move and pass deadlines requiring everything to be manually calculated backwards.
