Problem Description
---------------------------------------------------
Constraint in Project : Set a start date or finish date (constraint) for a task.

Typically Project management tools support constraint while creating project. Details below. Please let us know how to do incorporate this.

When you set a start or finish date for a task in Project, this means that you do not want that task to start or finish any earlier than that date. Constraints are applied to your tasks to impose restrictions on the way that the task's start and finish dates are calculated.
Each constraint type in Microsoft Project can be defined as a formula using the following conventions:
  ES = Early Start of the activity
  LS = Late Start of the activity
  EF = Early Finish of the activity
  LF = Late Finish of the activity
  SS = Scheduled Start of the activity
  SF = Scheduled Finish of the activity
  CD = Constraint Date
