Current bulk milestone shifting (pressing Shift + moving milestone) functionality is not sufficient as it moves the FULL project timeline (tasks PRIOR to and POST the milestone) forward or backward. So, a user that wants tasks PRE the milestone to stay in place cannot do this, resulting in a lot of manual rework in the project plan of moving all task groups that have been connected with milestones by hand.
Proposed Function & Use Cases
1) If a Milestone is moved by itself, or a milestone/s are affected by a task move due to a dependency chain, then a modal should open to prompt for below action options:
1.1) Move the project plan POST the milestone only? (this would keep in place all tasks/milestone PRE the moved milestone, currently Wrike does not do this. In a project you must have the ability to do this to keep in place what has been done to know when items where delivered)
1.2) Move the FULL project plan? (this would move the full project plan PRE & POST the milestone, like the current function)
1.3) Move Milestone Only (this moves the milestone to show the orange highlight conflict paths as a result of moving the milestone)
- this is critical functionality for detailed project plans with many moving parts
What do you think? - this took less than a 10 min write up/thought, Im sure you can suggest adjustments to above or suggestions (other than manual movement of task groups) of how you currently mass move project plans with various milestones. Nonetheless, a critical functionality especially for large project plans with many dependencies.
