Information in this document applies to any platform.


When Expected Finish Is Enabled And Using The Activity Status Field Dropdown In The Activities View To Complete The Activity, Actual Start Is Moved.
This only occurs when the Activity Details are collapsed to start the session.
If Activity Details are expanded, then it works as expected.

1. Go to Activities page
2. Add one Activity
3. Make sure you do not have Actual Start column in column list for the view.
4. Make sure detail pane is collapsed when the page is loaded, if not, collapse it and then reload i.e. page should be loaded with activity detail pane collapsed.
5. Start the activity i.e. change status to In Progress and save.
6. Schedule the Project and change data date i.e it should not be same as Start date, change it to some other value.
7. Now change status from In progress to Completed and observe Start date changing to data date that you gave while scheduling.

Actual Start should not move.
