Task Due Date History

We have an issue where at times people will change their due dates on the task itself and not give an explanation as to why. We can obviously see when the task had changed to the "new" due date, but at times we need to see what was put in originally. 

Can this be made a feature? The history, the timeline of task due dates.

In addition to having visibility into due dates that have changed, we should also have the ability to lock due dates to prevent them from moving for certain tasks.  When deadlines are missed, users can essentially hide their  by simply pushing out the due date and BOOM they're not overdue anymore.  There are many scenarios where we need accountability for hitting due dates but because date editing is not restricted, users are able to adjust their plans and that information is lost.

Hi Lisa,

We use mile stones for this purpose. Once the mile stone is set it can not be moved so even if someone moves their task date the milestone stays the same.

Thanks Adam!  What prevents them from moving their milestones?

If i am correct if they arnt an admin of the project then they should only be able to change the tasks they are assigned to. So if you dont assign them to the milestone take then only you can change it.

Or you could change your user rights within a project to limited. That would take away the ability for them to change dates anyway. depends how much control you want your users to have really.

I think you're on the right train here - I think I just need more control over exactly what tasks can be completed.  The 4 access roles Wrike has pre-built do not have the configuration of permissions I really need.
