Completing a task should set the actual finish date

(OP)
When completing a task project does is not changing the actual finish date to the date that I completed the task.  According the reading I have done this should be defaulted?

RE: Completing a task should set the actual finish date

???

When completing a task, you enter the actual finish date.

How else are you "completing" the task?  Any other approach will complete the task on the planned finish date.

RE: Completing a task should set the actual finish date

I enter in the date for tasks completed using the Table view.  On my screen I have both the table form and the gant shown.  

To update the progress of a project, I click on the "View" drop down menu, move curser down to "Table: ____ >"  The underscore represents the view you are currently looking at.  Me, I often go back and forth between Table: Entry and Table: Tracking.  Then move the cursor over to the next drop down menu, and select "Tracking".  Once this is done, the table headings will change from "Start/Finish" to " Act. Start/Act. Finish".  NOW is when I enter in the completion dates.

My management likes to see the Entry form of the table, so they can see the projected finish dates of the project.  I do all of my updating in the Tracking table form.
