Default Update Progress breaks with constraint

Hello,



I like to use milestones with fixed dates to track when other people/teams have promised a dependency, e.g. Test environment ready.

A downside is that the constraint added by fixing the date causes the "Update Progress -> reschedule all tasks" feature that I use to carry forward uncompleted work on tasks after the status date to generates the warning "Project did not reschedule certain tasks because of a constraint date attached to them".

Other than filtering out the milestones and then applying the update to selected tasks, is anyone aware of a way to get around this issue ?

Thanks,

Ben

I'm not sure I follow completely. Are the constraints on the milestones still valid? If predecessors have moved, are you still expecting the successor (milestones) to stay stable?

Instead of constraints on the milestones, have you considered deadlines?
