We are using the requirements module to plan activities and generate burn-down charts, but there is no element defining the start dates of each task (Only the planned hours) I don't see and date fields in the requirements other thank 'create date'. This field can be modified, but I would rather not use it for this purpose. A separate 'planned start date' field would be usefull. I would think this would be necessary with exports of data to other requirements tracking tools or MSProject, and to show order and possible dependencies of tasks.

Has anybody dealt with a this issue?

Thanks, Bruce
