    HI Matt, sounds like you're looking for a dependency lag for tasks. Wrike works withย date constraintsย rather than time delays. To add a date constraint, go to the Timeline View and reschedule the dependent task by dragging and dropping along the timeline. This will then add the task's start date constraint.ย 
    ย 
    For working from the end date you can set the last taskย in the dependency chainย as aย milestone, it won't reschedule the other tasks when/if you change dependent tasks but theย milestone iconย will highlight orange on the Timeline View when there's a conflict with other tasks start/end dates.
    ย 
    Some other members have suggested the same as you have in our Product Feedback section. It would be great to get your vote on thisย suggestion from Megan.ย 
    ย 
    I also just want to mention the newย Timeline Viewย which combines includes a table feature which you may find useful.ย It doesn't have lead/lag but you can turn it on fromย Wrike Labsย and I'd love to hear your thoughtsย on it here or you can click on the feedback link under the feature on the Labs page.

    Definitely need lead/lag!ย  ย 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.ย  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.
