Allow task start date to be the same as the due date

Some tasks (like a daily review) can’t be begun until the day they are due. Currently the UI for Asana though, only allows a start date to be entered if it is not the same as the due date. If you try to enter a start date which matches the due date, the start date is silently discarded.

Allowing a start date to be set which is the same as the due date would allow a more realistic view of tasks and facilitate tickets like Ability to Sort tasks by start date - #9 by Daniel_Raymond, Allow for Due date = Start Date + NUMBER, and Support hiding tasks where the start date has not passed

A previous request for this same feature was merged into a ticket which was only tangentially related and then closed.

Hi @Barrett_Smith, thanks for reaching out :slight_smile:

Thanks for taking the time to provide this feedback! While this is not something that is on our current roadmap, hopefully it’s something our Product team can look to implement in the future.

I’ll keep you updated here if anything changes! :slight_smile:
