  • There is no OOTB functionality that ensures a date to have these characteristics. Depending on your scenario where you want to use/fill/modify this field you may wish to look into validation using Javascript (PWA) or VBA (Project Professional). Additionally you may wish to ensure data integraty using Event Syncs. Please specify in more detail what you want to achieve where.

  • You can create a project level CF with the type as date. You can now use the date/time function that is residing under Pick Function tab in the formula part while you are creating a CF.

    Hope that helps!
