 Hi Alecsander

You *could* think of them as the same semantically I guess but in PM terms they are seen as quite different , where Finish No Later Than is classified as a Constraint and affects scheduling where Due Date is a "Deadline"

Take a look at the MS Project Schema reference at and also the blog post for more clarification.
