    Hi Raphael, firstly, I definitely want a 'Boom' sound added Wrike! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    I just want to confirm I fully understand what you're looking for:

    Currently, if you select a duration of 40 days, it will add 40 days from the start date you've selected. What you're suggesting here, is that when you set an end date, Wrike should configure 40 days backwards to determine the start date (i.e. the date the package should ship)?

    If so, it's a great idea, especially for people in the logistics industry. Thanks for posting!

    Stephen,

    that's exactly what me and my team need, we do this all the time.

    It would be very very nice tho if you could "lock" one or multiple time parameters and Wrike does the calculation for you.

    Thanks !

    Hi Raphael, I've brought it to the attention of the Product Team. It's a new request, so the team will need to review the request at the time they're making enhancements to this feature. If and when I have more information I'llย come back here and provide an update.

    It's a logical idea so thanks for sharing here so others can vote and discuss ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes please add this feature as soon as possible. I have to schedule most projects from a due (end) date. Wrike doesn't currently have a way to do this and find the correct start date. This feature is greatly needed and should be aย given in any trueย project management tool.

    My typical use case is to manually set both the start date and the end date, as I don't know (or care) what the duration in days is.ย  I can do this now in Table View mode (thanks for the tip, Elly L), but would like to also be able to do this in Task View. My suggestion is that the tool automatically choose the 3rd date based on the entry of the other two by the user.ย  I think that would accommodate both my use case and the ones mentioned above.
