Constraint Date vs Due Date


Mahari Hill (4861102218) | asked Feb 08 '16, 10:04 a.m.
All,

In the Formal Process Template, what will the Constraint Date and Due Date give me? By that, something is due on 3/8. If I choose Due Date = 3/8, does RTC due something? If I choose Finish No Later than 3/8 for the Constraint fields, does RTC due something different?

thanks

I am not certain, but I think due date is simply a timestamp attribute that is used to store a due date for a work item, while constraint date (and type) are used in planning/scheduling. See links below for related information:

The following link shows an example on extending the use of due date:
