Set the project Planned Completion Date

The Planned Completion Date of a project is the date by which the project is set to complete.

The Planned Start and the Planned Completion Dates of a project rely on the dates of the tasks on the project. This article describes how you can manually or automatically set the Planned Completion Date of a project. For more information about the Planned Completion Date of a task, see Overview of the task Planned Completion Date.

The Planned Completion Date of a project can be set manually or automatically, depending on whether you schedule the project from the Start or from the Completion Date.
