  • Hi Ragav,

    You can't avoid that from happening.  The way the tool works is:

    when planning out your tasks the scheduling engine will calculate the start and finish dates of tasks based on the start date of the project and any task dependencies. 

    When the 'actual finish' date is entered for a task the 'Finish' column will update automatically as that is now the known finish date. 

    You may want to consider baselining your project so that you can keep track of 'planned' finish dates. for tasks.
