Watch this: Create slack (float) in your schedule

Some projects may benefit from having slack (also called "float") (slack: The amount of time that a task can slip before it affects another task or the project's finish date. Free slack is how much a task can slip before it delays another task. Total slack is how much a task can slip before it delays the project.), built into the schedule. Slack provides some additional space in your project, so that if a task slips, pushing the schedule out, the project finish date is still met.

In this demo, I add slack to my project by creating a deadline for a task in a project that is scheduled from the finish date.
