Learn the functionality of Finish Date
I am sorry, but I am having a hard time understanding the purpose of Finish Date. I do not see it List View. I see Due Date in ListView that is not an option available when I am creating a Project/Folder/Task. All of this is confusing for me and needs some clarification. Thanks!
Hi Anjali Mishra, welcome to the forums 🙂
Due date is the date when a task should be completed by, like a deadline for a task. Finish date is the same thing, but for a project, that is to say, it's a date by which a project should be completed. There's also a completed date that can be used as a filter in, for example, reports and dashboards - this date shows on which date a task or a project was actually completed.
Please let me know if you have any questions, I'll be happy to help!

Hi Lisa, this both helps and concerns me. What field shows the date a project was actually finished?
Hi Willie Freeman,
Thank you for your question!
A project's Finish date is the date you plan for the project to be completed, or when the project is due. It's analogous to a task's Due date. For tasks, there is the system field "Completed date" which records the date the task was marked as complete. However, no such system field exists for projects, though you can easily find the date the project was completed by checking the project's activity stream.
If you need to keep track of a project's actual completion date, for reports or to use in filters, it's recommended to use a date-type custom field for this purpose.
