Project optimization - critical path

When you have dependent task (finish-to-start), the startdate of the dependent task is updated when you set the date of the previous task later in time.
But when you set the date of the previous task earlier in time, the date of the dependent task does not change.


I would like an option to start all dependent tasks immediately after the previous tasks, without any delay. So you can optimize the projectduration.

It's actually a pity that till today, there haven't been any response to your idea, Esther. This feature would be very welcomed by myself too and should be actually by logic already be integrated. However, obviously there is some reason on Mindjet side, not to consider anything like that????

Not sure if this has been answered, but in the 2019 version, under the "Task" tab you can click "Remove Slack Time" and it will automatically adjust all start times to begin at their earliest feasible point. I believe this is what you are looking for!
