Actual Start and Finish Dates

Actual Start and Finish Date provides precise information about when a Project and each of its Jobs were launched and concluded. It allows to track whether the process went as planned. 

Compared with planned start date ("'Ordered on"), which can be changed manually, the Actual Start Date for a Project is stamped automatically, when the first Job is started. 

It is recorded in the Order section of the Project.

Note

If a Job is restarted (rolled back from status 'Ready'), the date and time will be overwritten with new values.


In a similar way, First Close Date automatically stamps the moment a project becomes 'Closed'.
