Finish No Earlier Than

Using the Finish No Earlier Than Constraint

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:

  1. Navigate to a task whose Task Constraint you want to update.
  2. Click Edit Task.
  3. In the Overview section, expand the Task Constraint drop-down menu.
  4. Select Finish No Earlier Than.
  5. Specify a Planned Completion Date.
    The task must complete no earlier than this date. 
  6. Click Save Changes. 

Understanding the Finish No Earlier Than Constraint

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.
