Adjust Due Date Based On Completion Date

Is there a way to make a tasks due date change when it is completed?

For example, If I set a task timeline from 05/23/18-05/30/18 and it is completed on 05/25/18, could the timeline adjust and the task complete date replace the due date?

I agree.  I think part of this issue (which also creates some confusion) is that Wrike uses the term "Due Date" when it would be better described as "Finish Date".  I think it would be very helpful to have an additional date column for task due dates / deadlines that wouldn't necessarily change if/when the finish date does.  This would make it easier to compare scheduled (&/or deadlines) vs. actual finish dates.

in other words...... Planned vs actual.

I wouldn't want to see the "due date" change once "completed", however, I'd agree the name needs to be changed to "expected Finish date".

there would be a 2nd (newly created field) called "Actual Completion" date

Our timelines get off when contributors finish projects early and it has to move on to the next person. I would love if the completion date changed to 'todays' date and then it would be extra special if the entire timeline moved in OR if a notice was sent to the project owner that it was finished early so they can move it in. Something to allow some automation on the changing of the completion date to the actual completed date.

I agree with all of the above comments, and would like to add onto it the not-so-great scenario of when a task goes overdue, unless subsequent tasks have start date constraints, they should also get pushed out to start when the predecessor task was actually completed.

 

I would LOVE if Wrike implemented this feature!

Thanks a lot for your feedback here, everyone!

In regards to this suggestion, I'd like to mention a couple of things that are already available in Wrike:

1) Completion date - you can filter tasks by it

2) Custom Fields - you can add a field for "actual completion date" and filter tasks too

3) Baselines - they help you compare a project’s originally planned VS current scheduled start and due dates. Here's more info: https://help.wrike.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360027305473--From-Wrike-Make-a-beeline-for-Baselines-Now-available-in-Gantt-Charts-Wrike-Labs-

Hope this helps!

Hi Lisa, I am also looking for the ability to have dates of dependent tasks move based on completion, not due dates, of predecessor tasks when using dependencies.  Baselines are great for sure.  But could you let us know is this possible?

So if I have a task with a due date of March 13, and my next dependent task is scheduled for March 14.  But, I finish that first task on March 18.  With the next task still show a due date of March 14?  I understand that Wrike will Email the assignee that it's time to start that task, but will the due date change?

John Beck is this what you were looking for?  Your example is finishing ahead of schedule, mine is behind.  In each case, the functionality is very useful to move the next task's due date.

 

Thanks!

Hey Al Sape, this is currently not possible, but I can see how this could be beneficial! This feedback has been passed on to the Product team 😊

Hello, I also have the same need. I would like an automatic reschedduling of the gant chart based on the completion date and not on the due date.

For example if task 1 is finished with 1 month  in advance then task to will be notified 1 month later...I am loosing 1 month..

We would also like to see due date vs. actual date in a report.

It would be great if the completion date could be added to the dependency options, such as Completion to Start, Start to Completion, instead of or in addition to Start to Finish, Finish to Start. You would retain the original Due Date, but dependencies would react to the actual completion date.
