Enter Start On + Due On Dates = Updated Duration

Hi! Is it possible to enter the Start On and Due On dates and have the duration automatically updated? Right now, I have to enter the Start On date and mentally calculate the duration to land on an accurate Due On date. Thanks!

You could use fixed dates as your task constraint. You will pick the start and end dates and it will calculate. This will hard code your start and end dates.

I've been advocating for this for years. Most users don't want sit there and have to calculate the duration days to get the date they want.

This is the only way to get the date you want AND an "ASAP" task constraint. Using fixed dates does not allow your dates to flow when things are delayed or completed early.
