Project End Date Schedule Adjustment

Who should attend:

Project managers, project schedulers


  • Learn how to determine your project start date by the required deadline or end date
  • Remove the existing predecessor on the last task, if there is one
  • Go to the first task on the project and create a dependency to the last task on the project
  • Create a 'lead' predecessor and add the number of days in your project, plus some slack days
  • If the deadline changes, you can move the last task and the project start date will automatically shift (assuming all of your tasks are connected with dependencies)
  • You can shift an entire project, a phase or sections of your WBS, leveraging the intelligent scheduling to move everything together
