    Oh, hi! 😄

    Just so I'm clear, you would reschedule the Milestone and from there all other tasks before and after would align accordingly - great feedback! Right now, you can only set from the start or end dates. We'll make sure we pass this to the relevant Product Manager for when they're reviewing this feature in the future!

    @Stephen, exactly - the project would keep the relative spacing for tasks that happen before AND after the milestone. This would allow the person duping the project to reschedule based on the date they know for sure - the milestone date - rather than estimate from the first or last task.

    Thanks!

    @Carolanne Hey hey - I'm sorry for asking for more specifics here - but I'm guessing that the milestone isn't the last task in the sequence then? If that's the case are there a lot of tasks following the milestone?

    @Stephanie, that's correct.

    In the example I screenshotted above, we're launching a piece of content, and the release date is the milestone. We have tasks for planning and production that happen before the milestone, but we also have post-launch tasks that occur once the content is released, such as continued promotion on social or reporting on how well the content performed. The first task can be as early as four months before launch, and the last task can be as late as two months following launch.

    For us, the release date makes more sense for scheduling than making the first or last task a milestone - in some cases, there can be variation in when the project begins or how much post-launch promotion we do, and it's also possible to adjust the timeline or omit other tasks without disturbing the release date, because it's the milestone.

    Hope that helps!

    @Carolanne That makes a lot of sense. I was wondering why the last task wouldn't work, but if the post-launch activities change I completely understand. Thank you so much for that!👌

    I came here looking for this very request. I hope they make it happen! We have the same problem--defined deployment dates but variable post-deployment tasks.

    Hi @All, thanks for your input here 👍 All the feedback is passed to our Product team. +1's of the original suggestion help us assess its popularity among Wrike users. For now, I don't have an update to share with you, but I'll get back to you when I have news. Once the suggestion hits 60 votes, we'll add one of the Product Feedback statuses to it.

    We'd really like to see this implemented. Our use case is very similar to Carolanne's. We have a checklist for new employees which has a hard deadline in the middle for the employee's start date. We have tasks leading up to the start date and tasks trailing the start date, but the start date is the part set in stone.

    To add a twist, we'd like to do this in a Request Form. So we have a Date field on the request form that feeds into the milestone task and the project re-schedules around the milestone task.

    This would be really great to have.  We use Wrike to manage a lot of events, with pre and post work for each event.  Currently, we have to have 2 projects (Post-event and Pre-event) in order for our tasks to be scheduled correctly.  Hopefully this gets added soon

    Hey everyone, thank you for all of your feedback!

    Our Product team is still interested in this suggestion but it is not on their short-term roadmap. For that reason, the "Backburner" status has not changed. I'll keep you posted whenever I get an update!

    Please consider adding this feature. As I work more with marketing teams, I'm finding that this scenario is EXTREMELY common. Is there any way to escalate this request since it has enough votes?

    Hi Rich Teachout, thank you for the feedback.

    In regards to how requests are processed, I'd recommend reading this thread about the system that the Product team uses when reading suggestions.

    Hope this helps! If you have any questions, let me know.

    I was only adding my .02 and hoping to help get this feature out of backburner status... not sure I needed to read a long article that could have been summed up with:

    "The votes, comments, and threads you start in the Product Feedback section make a difference and allow you to connect directly to the Product Team."

    😕
