Question How to help - Project 2007 - Scheduling tasks during specific windows of opportunity

HELP!! We have formal scheduled meetings and change windows for tasks.

Example: Change control meetings always occur on Thursdays. I have mixed duration deliverables to be completed before going to "approval to proceed" meeting. I create critical-path milestones for the meeting. If i get everything done on Friday, i still need to wait until following thursday before any additional work can continue. If i finish on Wednesday, however, the next day i can go to the meeting.



I have several bureaucratic approval "gates" to jump through, each with unique schedules. Is there a way, other than creating a bunch of special calendars and assigning tasks to those calendars to build the window/wait times into an individual task?


Thanks for your help!

Making the custom calendars with "buffer" tasks is the most efficient manner. The other option is to constrain the tasks but require manual intervention.
