Feature Request: Deadline Management

Is it possible to add a must fix date to the system.

We work within a highly deadlined environment, where have a lot of items to be done different times.

5 level priority is useful, but not adequate. It would be much better to be able to set a date, and see approaching deadlines.

Is "fix for" not adequate for this?

Fix for works for predefined releases. In that case, I would need to define lots of releases with different dates.

Also, a will start date would be most helpful within that context.

Then a weekly or monthly report, showing what lies ahead may be collected. (I plan to uninstall MsProject :) )

I think I see, but not clearly (given that I'm trying to avoid getting involved with MS Project in the first place).

Yes you'd have to specify lots of fix for dates but I don't see how what you want that is different to this (I'm probably just being thick)

Some times we need to push our a quick fix before a release is ready to address production issues.  We also have a lot "mature" sytems do not get regular releases any more.  In this case a "due" date will be very helpful in communicating the deadline requirements.
