Dates do not need to be specified when a new task is added to a box (either by creation or modification of scope definition). Tasks without dates are visible in the task tree (WBS) but aren’t shown on the Gantt chart until the start/end date is specified. Additionally, unscheduled tasks are visible in a panel on the Resouces module.
Note: Existing tasks that have already been positioned on the timeline are NOT affected by the change.
The Overdue feature is NOT available for tasks that don’t have a start/end date.
Change of a task duration or the estimate value results in a task being resized. The mapped value (either start or end) is updated. The other date doesn’t change (unless additional scheduling mechanisms apply)
Change of the start/end date value (behavior the same regardless of which value is mapped):

When a parent task without dates is in the auto-bottom-up scheduling mode and its children have no dates it is impossible to add dates to the parent.
