Start dates on weekends shift towards next Monday, although the project is calculated backwards ("Schedule tasks on weekends" unchecked)


  • creating a new project from a template (with scheduled tasks)
  • and fixing the end date in order to have Asana calculate all start dates backwards
  • and “Schedule tasks on weekends” is unchecked,

Asana shifts start dates on weekends to the next Monday, while in my opinion it should shift them to the previous Friday, in order to ensure delivery in time.

Thank you in advance for clarifying!
