Start No Later Than (SNLT) is a Task Constraint that schedules a task to start prior to the date you specify.
To update the Task Constraint to Start No Later 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 Start No Later Than.
- Specify a Planned Start Date.
This is the date by which the task must start, and not later than this date.
- Click Save Changes.
You should typically use the Start No Later Than constraint when the project is scheduled From Complete Date. In this case, you can provide a soft constraint on a task before it forces other dependent tasks to show as At Risk.
When you use SNLT with a Schedule From Start Date project, then the constraint will schedule the task as it would an As Soon As Possible task.
