Setting the Start or Finish Date for the Project

As you saw in Hour 3, all projects are scheduled from a fixed start date or a fixed finish date. New projects are, by default, scheduled from the beginning of the work day on the current date (your computer's internal clock date) as a fixed start date. So, if you start Microsoft Project at 3:00 p.m. on June 1, 1999, and start entering tasks in the new document (project1.mpp), the tasks are scheduled to start at 8:00 a.m. on that date—unless you change the project's fixed start date or finish date.

Note

Even if you don't display the time of day in the date format, Project attaches the default time for the start of the work day (normally 8:00 a.m.) to the fixed start date or the default time for the end of the work day (normally 5:00 p.m.) to the fixed finish date. The section "Adjusting the Start and End of the Working Day" shows you how to change these default times.
