Locking single Task in a project would be helpful to set fixed periods within the planning e.g. vacation periods.

    Thanks the idea.

    Locking specific tasks will cause logic problem

    - If one task in a group is locked, when move task group (change group task start date), logic issue
    - If tasks be linked, but one is locked, when move predecessor task, logic issue
    - If to change the start date of whole project, what will happen

    Project schedule is NOT todo tasks. Project schedule should guide the team how to execute (when, who, depends, cost ...), AND the project schedule should reflect the reality of the project, that means if the tasks schedule to be completed before today, but not completed before today, the project schedule should be rescheduled, that means all the tasks planned to be completed before today should be completed. There is no need to lock task like a TODO app.

    Or there is something hidden which caused me not get your real pain points for project schedule

    This functionality would be great. I tend to use milestones for fixed due dates and in that case it makes no sense that the predecessor moves the milestone forward.

    I have fixed time periods to work with, and as soon as I add a subtask, it shrinks the time period!
