Linking Due Dates
When the due dates are not linked:
When you don’t link the due date and you move a stage ahead as long as that stage is still within the next stage, the date won’t move.
For example, a stage Draft and Review.
The Draft stage is due on 9/14 and the Review stages is due on 9/17, if you move the Draft stage to 9/15 the due date for Review stages won’t move.
When you link the due dates:
If you link the due dates this is when all the stages following the stage you moved will move forward.
For Example, you have a Draft, Review and Design stage.
The Draft stage is due on 9/14, Review stage is due 9/17, and the Design stage is due 9/19.
If you link the due dates and move the Draft stage to 9/15 all the following stages will move 1 day to Review = 9/18 and Design = 9/20. In addition, the Complete stage will move 1 day as well.
