Duration and Start&Finish Date

Duration and Start&Finish Date

Duration and Start&Finish Date

Hi (sorry for my english, I'm Italian)
All activities on Project have each one a fixed Duration and it's possibile to execute all the activities in a certain period, for example 1 month. The sum of duration of all activities can be max 1 month or less.
it doesn't matter when I execute an acitivity, the important thing is to execute all the activity within the month.
Is it possible to fix the Start & Finish date from 1 to 31 day for each activity and left duration fixed?
Do you know other way to plan these activity type?
Thanks in advance.

RE: Duration and Start&Finish Date

Hi, thanks a lot.
It isn't possible to unrelate Duration from Start and Finish date? Is it possible move the duration without change Start or Finish date?

RE: Duration and Start&Finish Date

You're confusing Duration and Work.  Work is the allocated time required to complete the task.  Duration can be anything you want it to be.
