Description

If you have following situation, parent issue with relation to start n days after some other issue,
and try to add sub-issue, it will populate start date with today's date.

Instead, it should populate start date with calculated date, because any date entered before
calculated date would result with following error message:

Issue start date cannot be earlier than (actual calculated date) because of preceding issues

I think this is expected behavior. What do you expect?

#2 Updated by Aleksandar Pavic over 5 years ago

It forbids you to enter any date earlier then calculated date.

However javascript is set to "today date", which is N days before "calculated date".

So instead of populating calendar automatically with "today date", it should populate it automatically with "calculated date".

Just because it unnecessarily triggers "Issue start date cannot be earlier than (actual calculated date) because of preceding issues" error.

And it's just frustrating if somebody is planning larger project with hundreds of tasks, with planned duration of tasks.
