Finish No Earlier Than (FNET) is a Task Constraint that schedules a task to complete after the date you specify.
To update the Task Constraint to Finish No Earlier Than:
- Navigate to a task whose Task Constraint you want to update.
- Click Edit Task.
- In the Overview section, expand the Task Constraint drop-down menu.
- Select Finish No Earlier Than.
- Specify a Planned Completion Date.
The task must complete no earlier than this date.
- Click Save Changes.
You should typically use this constraint when the project is scheduled From Completion Date. In this case, you can provide a soft constraint on the task before forcing other dependent tasks to show At Risk.
When you use FNET on a project scheduled From Start Date project, then the constraint will schedule the task as it would an As Soon As Possible task.
