Hi All,
I'm new to SharePoint, I'm having requirement of setting a Project Management tool in which the start date, end date of task to be calculated automatically based on few parameters. For example lets take a Project called Project A which has list of tasks, lets say *Task A, Task B, Task C etc. The start date of Task is*Project confirmation date + 1 and the end date is 2 days from the start date.*

*Now if a create a custom field called Project confirmation date can we calculate the start date and end date of the task automatically, Similarly there are other parameters for Task B, C etc. Is this kind of a set feasible in SharePoint? Please help.
Thanks and Regards,

Yes in this scenario, calculated column can be used mostly. Here is the good MSDN article for Calculated Field Formulas.

If you are considering out of the box solution then calculated column is the best approach I can say.

If you are looking some solution from code side you can create Event receiver for particular list item event and add the column values into your field Project Confirmation Date. Read this articles: How to create and Event Receiver in SharePoint
Creating a Simple Event Receiver

Hope this helps!
