You can use the Must Finish On (MFO) Task Constraint to schedule a task to end on a specific date.
The Must Finish On constraint schedules a task to finish exactly at the time and date you specify in the Planned Completion Date field.
Manually updating a task’s Planned Completion Date changes the constraint of the task to Must Finish On.
Consider the following when scheduling a task with a Must Finish On constraint:
Predecessor relationships do not force the task to be rescheduled. Adobe Workfront essentially ignores the predecessor relationships.
The task shows as At Risk if the predecessors begin to run behind or are late.
When you move or copy a task with a MFO constraint to another project, the constraint of the task or the dates of the project might change depending on what the constraint dates are and what the Start and Completion Dates of the project are. The following scenarios exist:
When the destination project is scheduled From Start:
When the constraint date of the task is earlier than the project Planned Start Date, the task constraint changes to As Soon As Possible.
When the constraint date of the task is later than the project Planned Completion Date, the project Planned Completion Date changes to match the completion constraint date of the task.
When the destination project is scheduled From Completion:
Regardless of the schedule of the project, when the constraint date of the task is within the Start and Completion Dates of the project, there are no changes to the Task Constraint or the project dates.
