Visualising that tasks were finished later than planned.

I have tasks that are overdue, and this is of course obvious both in the mindmap and in Gantt, However, when I mark the task complete, I'm unable to see that it was actually completed 1 day or 2 weeks later than planned. This does not show the right picture. I do not wish to move the task to the date it was actually finished, as it will not provide me with the full picture of how the project was actually conducted.
Please advise.

One suggestion could be to add a property with the planned end date and another one with the actual end date. In each tasktopic. You now have the option to create a formula that signals overdue tasks.
I wohld love to be able to do this in the taskinfo ofcourse.

You can use the MAP add-in to add a topic property that will show and retain the due date after the task is completed. Unfortunately I can't see how you canĀ use this or any other date-formatted topic property in a formula, as MM formulas don't seem to recognise topic properties in anything other than numeric formats.
