Update Commit Dates on tasks and issues

Updating the Commit Date is identical for tasks and issues.

  1. Go to a task or issue that you are assigned to as the Owner.

    For more information about finding out who the Task Owner for an issue or task is, see the section Edit tasks in the article Edit tasks.

  2. Click Task Details or Issue Details in the left panel.

  3. Click Overview to expand it.

  4. Update the Commit Date field.

  5. Click Save Changes.

    The following happens after making this change: 

    • The Commit Date and the Planned Completion date of the task or issue are no longer the same.

      Instead, the Commit Date and the Projected Completion Date of the task or issue become the same.

    • If you are using the legacy Updates area, the Project Owner is notified that you have suggested a new Commit Date for the task or issue and can, at this time, update the Planned Completion Date of the task or issue to match the Commit Date you suggested. This functionality is not supported in the new commenting experience. For information, see The new commenting experience.

      For information about the notifications and updates that are triggered by this change, see the section Notifications and updates triggered by changing the Commit Date in the article Commit Date overview.
