Using the Finish No Later Than Constraint

Finish No Later Than (FNLT) is a Task Constraint that schedules a task to complete before the date you specify.

To update the Task Constraint to Finish No Later 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 Later Than.
  5. Specify a Planned Completion Date.
    You must complete the task on and not later than this date. 
  6. Click Save Changes.

 Understanding the Finish No Later Than Constraint

You should typically use this constraint when the project is scheduled From Start Date. In this case, you can provide a soft constraint on a task before it forces other dependent tasks to show as At Risk.

If FNLT is used with a Schedule From Completion Date project, then the constraint will schedule the task as it would an As Late As Possible task.
