In ALAP scheduling, today is not a valid end date if no dates are assigned
|Reported by:||Chris Nelson||Owned by:||Chris Nelson|
Any unspecified date defaults to today but if no dates are specified, an ALAP schedule works backwards from the end, gives the last task today as a due date then works into the past. But we can't work in the past so that's not a great choice.
Unfortunately, we don't know the makespan of the project before starting so we can't easily say "today plus makespan" as the starting point.
This should be fixed, even though I don't know how right now.
