Milestones Do Not Properly Reschedule Based on Dependencies

Wrike should distinguish between a projected milestone date and a confirmed date. When the date is projected, it should reschedule. This is how most good gantt charts function.

Milestones that are dependent should move to match the dependencies!!!

I agree with Matthew's original suggestion to have two different types of milestones, one that can be rescheduled and another one that can't. Sometimes my milestones are dictated by deadlines, in which case the current 'sticky' behaviour is perfect. However, most of my project's milestones are not driven by deadlines and I'd like to allow those milestones to re-schedule based on their dependencies.

This issue is not explained in the documentation about dependencies on the Gantt chart: https://help.wrike.com/hc/en-us/articles/209604229-Dependencies-on-the-Gantt-Chart-. Currently, it says, "When you reschedule a task with dependencies all dependent tasks are automatically rescheduled." A Milestone is a kind of task, isn't it? But Milestones are not automatically rescheduled when their preceding tasks are.

I agree with Hans Juergen, actually you do need both. Sometimes you want the milestone to move along with its dependency, other times you do not.

Hey everyone, apologies for the delay in response here.

I have a quick update - it is possible to move tasks to reschedule tasks and their dependencies at the same time. If you shift+click on a task to move it, it moves the entire chain, including the dependencies. If you don't want to move dependencies, you can click without pressing shift and drag it to the new date. You can read more about this on our Help Centre.

Hope this helps! If you have any other questions, be sure to let me know.
