We are trying to get the Gantt to display just a selected date range for tasks and subtasks, without the ability to scroll forward or backwards past those explicit dates. I am altering start and end dates for tasks that start before or end after the designated date ranges so they do not go outside of the time period we want to display. This works well on the start side of the timeline, however, the end of the time line always displays more time periods.
An example. Selected date range is 1/1/2016 --> 12/31/2017, using Year view. All tasks start at or after the selected start (any task that starts before the 1/1/2016 date is altered to start on 1/1/2016), and all tasks are updated to end at or before the selected end date. Gantt time line starts correctly at 1/1/2016 and does not allow scrolling prior to that date. All tasks/subtasks end (or were altered to end) before the end date, but the timeline scrolls for another whole year through 12/31/2018. Is there any way to force the timeline to end at a specified date?
Let me know if you need further clarification, and thank you.
