Countdown to Deadline

Countdown to Deadline

Countdown to Deadline

(OP)
Hi Everyone,

I am wondering how can you create a task that the start deadline keeps changing to today's date however the final deadline of the project is fixed. So that if have something due Friday and its Wednesday the start date would be Wednesday even though you set it on Monday.

RE: Countdown to Deadline

Hi

I would create a custom field formula on the start column that looks for the 'task' name and adjusts the start date for only that task.

Regards,
Dora
