Any way to not have start/due dates calculated automatically in Inspector window?

Hi, running MM for Mac 11. Is there any way to avoid having MM automatically compute the start and due dates when entering durations? I want to use MM to capture my Work Breakdown Structure for a project, and keep the team focused on the tasks, the durations, and the dependencies. I don't want them to get sidetracked looking at dates; we can look at those in a second iteration. Specifically, I am referring to the start/due dates that appear in the Inspector tab. I just want those to always stay blank, even if I fill in a duration.

Hi Karen,

Currently  we do not have a way to just enter duration without adding start and due dates.
But you can use Effort field instead and see if this helps you achieve  what you are looking for.
You can delink duration and effort and just enter effort for tasks.
