Default MS Project Start Dates not matching the Status Date

Hello,



I am working with a schedule that is placing all "Finish No Later Than" constraint tasks to the project start date, not the status date, which would make more sense to me. Currently, the tasks do not have any actuals, nor constraint dates. But I would like to see these tasks not so far in the past. Any suggestions?

Schedule options currently set:
New tasks: Start on Current Date
Calc. mode: Automatic
Move end of completed parts after status date back to status date (off)
Move start of remaining parts before status date forward to status date (on)

I am relatively new to MS Project, so any assistance is appreciated. Thank you!

Hi sjodom,
Did you find help on another site? If not, post back and I'll try to assist. How are you adding the constraints? Usually if you add constraints you specify the constraint date.

Are you scheduling the project from the start date or the finish date? (Check Project > Project Information)
