Let System Administrators set a default task Constraint type in setup.

Definitely would like to see this feature. Most of the issues we have with new users is because this cannot be set as a default.

Project leaders are are regularly frustrated by the fact that they cannot enter the start and finish dates on their projects without worrying about duration. They are asking for Fixed Dates as a default. Without that option they are using spreadsheets because that's easier and more manageable for project leaders without formal project training. It is not efficient to change the Task Constraint for each new task as opposed to setting the default task constraint at the project level to Fixed Dates.

Surprised this isn't already implemented. Our organization has a number of non-titled project managers managing projects and this remains one of the hardest concepts to teach. This is a barrier to adoption for us and has us considering a simpler solution.

Our team would like to see this implemented as well! We would likely use Fixed Dates or As Soon As Possible for our default constraint.

Yes, I'd expect to find this in setup with the ability to set it in the Group > Task/Issue Preferences. I'd also expect to be able to change it within the project's Task Settings
