Hello,

As I noticed ftrack will stop me from adjusting the start/due date to a weekend day. How to disable this behaviour?

Strangely gantt accept this if I draw the time frame at the first time.

 

Cheers,

John.

Hi John,

You're using the Gantt scheduler on a Project's Tasks view, correct? I'm not aware of a modifier key to disable the behavior you noticed, which is based on the assumption that work is only being done on a work day. The list of workdays is under System Settings > Scheduling > Settings > Workweek. I understand you might not want to make the change there, so if it's a rare occurrence that you need to schedule a Task for the weekend, you can always edit the start and end dates manually by clicking on the Task name and editing the required attribute(s) in the info panel.

Thanks Steve for the detailed description. For now we'll edit the date manually if necessary.

But I think it makes sence that gantte schedule view should give the user proper space to do what he wants to do, as it's the user's responsiblity to make the time frame. On the other hand I didn't see this behaviour when it's unscheduled, so it's good to unify the behaviour(to not interfere user's decision) anyway.

Cheers.
