[SOLVED] Schedule of the project created from template

Hi Guys,

I am new to collabtive and still trying to understand how it works. I have the following concern:

I created a template project with milestones and tasks with dates (which reflact the time needed for each task). The problem is when I want to use this template for a real project. Once I create a project from the template the dates became totally crazy. I even tried to set identical start but it doesn't help. Am I doing something wrong? How to control the date of starting the project in a day I want?

Let me explain this with an example:

Template due date: 01.01.2017
Template includes task "Do this" with due date: 10.01.2017

You derive a "real" project from this template and set this due date: 01.02.2017

The plugin then calculates the days between template due date and task due date and adds this number of days to the real project due date.
The resulting date will be set as the due date of the derived task.

In this example the resulting task will be due on: 10.02.2017


Hope this helps :)
