  • Question

  • Is there a feature in Project 2016 (with Project Server) where adding a new task will set the constraint to Start No Earlier Than automatically?

    Yes.  Open a project, then click File > Options > Schedule.  In the "Scheduling options for this project" section, click the "Auto scheduled tasks scheduled on" drop-down menu and select the Current Date item.  Once this option is set, when you enter a new task in the schedule, Microsoft Project will use a Start No Earlier Than constraint with the Constraint Date set to the current date.  Hope this helps.
