The Relative Project Dates tool allows you to define a map or map template with category labels that specify the start and due dates of tasks relative to a reference date you enter. You can leave these codes in place for later revisions or have them removed by the macro. To use the tool, download the ao_set_relative_dates.mmbas macro and run it.

Setting Relative Date Codes

You can set the relative date codes Using the MindReader m tag or by choosing "New Text Marker" from the Ribbon menu and putting it into a new "Categories" group:
