Get Summary Finish date to Subtask RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Is there (Except from creating a macro) a way to get a subtask finish date to reflect the finish date of the summary task. Am aware of that it is the dates from the sub tasks that sets the finish date of the summary task, but are wondering if there still is a way of doing the opposite.

    (Have a milestone that keeps a task with a cost related to which should be calculated at the end of each Project.)

    Kind regards //Anders

  • The only thing I can think of simply is to set the milestone as a successor of the summary task. In such a case the milestone cannot be a subtask of the summary. Generally, linking summary tasks is bad practice, but in your case maybe not as the milestone is not a work item.
