Dynamic View will not allow me to edit a Due date or Finish Date?

I have checked all of my settings in the main sheet and dependencies are not turned on nor predecessors, the box remains grey? I also have ensured that in the details panel, it is not read only.

    By any chance is the finish date calculated by durations based on a start date or by a formula? I don't have the dynamic view, but in reports when a field is calculated with formulas it is uneditable.

    Mike is correct. Also, make sure the date column is not locked in the main sheet.

    If the finish date is assigned in the dependencies settings in the Gantt View then you will not be able to change it. I think that is the case even if the dependencies check box is not checked.

    Hi Marc,

    Is it the same for all rows? Are you using any Field Logic rules?

    I hope that helps!

    Have a fantastic week!
