  2. Click Work on itin the task or issue header

    Or

    Click Start Task or Start Issue if the Work on it button has been customized in your environment to indicate that you are now working on the work item.

    At this time, the Commit Date and the Planned Completion Date of the task or issue are the same.

  3. (Optional) If you clicked Start Task or Start Issue, click Undo in the lower-left corner of the screen. The Commit Date is removed.
