Creating Constraints


There are two ways to create constraints: by editing the start or finish date of the task, or by editing the Task Information dialog. When editing a date, the constraint you get from the edit depends on which date you edited (Start or Finish) and how your project is scheduled (from the start date or from the finish date).
