Set a deadline for a task [MS]

If you want a task to end on a particular day, set a finish date for the task.

  1. Right-click a task, click Information > Advanced tab.

  2. Next to Constraint type, click Must Finish On.

  3. Next to Constraint date, fill in your end date.

Tip:  To set the finish date back to its original setting, change the Constraint type to As Soon As Possible.

Set a deadline for a task

Keep in mind that setting the finish date can lock up your schedule in ways you don't want. If you just need a reminder, use the Deadlinebox instead. That will create an arrow on the Gantt chart and an indicator in the Indicator column that changes color when the deadline is passed.

  1. Right-click a task, click Information > Advanced tab.

  2. Next to Deadline,fill in your deadline date.
