Set task dates based on ONE task in the project and all others key off that one

Do you have plans (and if not, can you add them) to make is so that all tasks in a project can be keyed off of one date of a task in the project? I have one key task that once set, everything else runs backwards or forwards from that date. Being able to set up my template so that date is the only one entered and the rest are either date+n or date-n would be really useful.

    Hi Tavie

    Thank you for your suggestion

    Have you checked the help section on project templates

    can you have a look at that and then relate your question to it using a jing video so that we understand better exactly what you would like

    Thanks John

    This is rather difficult to demonstrate something that doesn't exist. But here's my best shot.

    Please note that the dependencies feature does not help in this scenario.
