current date

The Current Date is the boundary between the past and the future. Using the PC's system date by default, it can be edited within the Project Information dialog box. Tasks between the project start date and the current date should be complete, those happening after the current date should possess remaining work. The current date display on a Gantt chart can be altered using the Gridlines dialog box (Format..Gridlines). The current date is sometimes referred to as the as-of date. See also: status date.
