The task start date will no longer be editable after actuals have been posted to that task. Additionally, if there is no ETC hours remaining on the task (ETC = 0), the task finish date will be read only as well.
Release: All Releases
Component: PPM Project Management
This is working by design:
For the Task Start Date:
If a project manager wants to use the scheduling features of Clarity to develop a resource-driven schedule, they need to make task assignments and use ETC to convey the scope of the work for a given assignment. Clarity can then use its auto schedule algorithm to set task start and finish dates or the project manager can override the suggested dates with their own dates.
Clarity supports both models: 1) simple time tracking against assigned and unassigned tasks without project manager intervention and 2) project manager defining scope of work using ETC with either manual manipulation of task dates or auto schedule algorithm.
We are always open to consider other models and encourage our customers to submit enhancement requests that explain how they use the product and how an enhancement could benefit them and other Clarity customers.
