Issue:

Unable to edit a task's Start if Actuals have been posted on the task. Additionally, if there is no ETC left on the task (ETC = 0), you are also unable to change the task's Finish date. 
 

Resolution:
This is working by design: 

For the Task Start Date:
  • If actuals are submitted for a task, the Start Date for the task is automatically set to the first day actuals are submitted for the task and is unable to be changed. 
  • The one way this date can be changed  to an earlier date in this scenario is if time is posted against the task on a date that is prior to the current task Start date (it will then change to that earlier date).
For the Task Finish Date:
  • If there is no ETC left on the task after actuals are posted,the task Finish date is also unable to be edited.
  • To change the task Finish date, add any ETC amount to the task greater than 0, then you will be able to change the task Finish date.
