Hi there,

Just discovered your app today having spent £50 over the last couple of months trying to find a good solution - your £5 app is far and away the most flexible, intuative and useful so thanks for that!

I was wondering if it might be possible to enter a fixed end date rather than (or as an alternative to) inputing estimated duration? I understand that the "proper" way to run a project is as you have coded it, however I work in an industry where I am handed a set of dates to hit which cannot move and I need to see how the activities and corresponding effort react to these fixed dates. Do you think it would be possible to add this as an option please? It would make my life very much easier.

Thanks again for the app, it is excellent!

Your model of planning is clear to me, it is quite common, especially in the business with imposed unconditional external constraints. So far I can recommend to plan a project from a conventional starting date, and then to move it in order to obtain the desired end time. In fact, rigid fixation of the completion of a project is quite an ambiguous concept, as it implies a sharp increase in risk of loss of quality and budget overruns. The software can calculate the schedule fixed by one point, but calculation with two fixed points is often impossible, so in the end a calculation for a fixed completion is nearly identical to shifting a fixed start.

However, I will think how to simplify accounting of your concept in the application.

Thanks for coming back to me, I'm excited to see what you will come up with.

Another question: is it possible to have a high level item as a predecessor to a subtask in another high level item? I have a number of subtasks which are affected by a single high level item, but this HL item doesn't affect everything in the other HL item. At the moment my options are to have the HL item reflected as a subtask next to each of the affected subtasks, or to flatten out my structure so that everything is at the same level.

It is entirely possible that I have missed something, but if not, it would help me immensely to be able to do this.

Thanks again, and as I said this is clearly the best option for managing a project that I have come across in the app store.

The program has the opportunity to specify such a dependence with a proxy object. Create a proxy in the embedded diagram and assign an item of a higher level to it as a master. However, I must warn that when using proxies, the diagram analysis functions may not work properly, as well as some objects cannot be linked with such a connection, if it results in a circular reference.

In practice, you should avoid projects whose task structure is not tree-like, as implicit horizontal connections are often the cause of "smearing" of responsibility within the project, which leads to higher risks, more difficult to be adequately estimated.
