When setting up dependencies, is there a way to add a time buffer? For example, I want task B to be dependent on Task A, but I do not need to start task B until a week after Task A is completed? Or I need to start Task A a week before Task B. The example I am trying to work with is I would like to set my first task as "Project Start Date" and once that is set then it would change the start dates for every task in project. Or I would like to set my project end date and then tasks prior to that would set their dates based on when the project needs to be completed.
Definitely need lead/lag! A large part of my 3000+ tasks can only be done with buffers in between of 20 days or more and it is a huge aggravation when shuffling tasks around which we do at least 50 per day so you can understand our frustration

Definitely need to be able to set a task in the future as a dependency and be able to change the number of days duration for the prior task and have that prior task's start date change. All our projects start with an end deadline date and the same tasks and we need to know when we need to start the project.
