Project Start date

Hello,

I have switched to Lightspeed so that i can be familiar with the interface when all users are switched.  I used to be able to assign a project start date to the project in the old version with out a Due date being generated.  Now i can't do that.  I want to know when a project is commenced even if no tasks will be assigned and have start dates straight away.  

We find it is helpful to be able to register a project with a start date and no finish date.  We like to have our projects on Wrike as soon as we are engaged so that we know what’s is coming up and fees that are confirmed.  We don’t necessarily start work straight away and can’t always schedule the tasks before a start up meeting (which is at the client’s discretion and control) 

 

Is it possible to have the project start date available again?

Thank you for sharing your feedback Janet Hiern! I confirm that while this isn't possible in the project view currently, you can still do it in the New Table view because there are two separate columns for start and due dates. So you can only choose the start date and leave the due date column empty, and it will be reflected in the project view.

I hope this helps! I've also shared your use case with our Product team, and if we have updates on the project view setup in the future, we'll let you know.

Is the Due Date the same as the Finish Data?  If not, Where can I find the Finish Date in Lightspeed?

Hi Andy Longoria, welcome back to the forums! 

For projects, they are the same, just called "finished date" in reports. Please let me know if I can help you with anything else 🙂
