Proposed Finish Date (project field)

The Proposed Finish Date field contains the estimated end date for the current proposal. This field is controlled by the workflow (A workflow represents the structured governance process for projects to proceed through lifecycle phases. An organization's project workflow can be modeled and controlled through the demand management features in Project Web Access.).

Data Type    Date (date field: A type of field whose content is a date. Examples include the Baseline Start and Early Finish fields.)

Entry Type    Entered (entered field: A field in which you may type or edit information. This is in contrast with a calculated field, in which Project calculates and enters information.)

Best Uses    Add the Proposed Finish Date field to a proposal when you want to include the estimated project end date. This can provide useful information for the Portfolio Analysis process.

Example    You are proposing a project to develop a Web-based customer service solution. You add the Proposed Finish Date field to the proposal and enter the estimated end date.

Remarks    This field is an example of a custom date field provided with Microsoft Project Server. You can view a list of available custom fields, and also create your own. In the left pane of Microsoft Project Web Access, click Server Settings. Under Enterprise Data, click Enterprise Custom Fields and Lookup Tables.
