Introduction:

Issue:

When the start and/or finish dates of a subproject are set outside of the parent start and/or finish dates of the parent project, the parent project start and/or finish dates should be pushed out. 

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Create a parent project with a short duration 
  2. Create a subproject with a short duration that falls within the parent project. Add the project as a subproject of the parent. 
  3. Push the start and/or finish dates of the subproject out beyond the parent start and/or finish

Expected Result: That the parent dates will be pushed out as well

 

Actual Result: They are not and there is an error seen in the logs
