Microsoft Project: Task type as Fixed Duration

I am sure that any project manager has faced a lot of troubles when he tried to change the initial schedule of a task to a new one. Microsoft Project is designed to help the project manager by changing the start date or the end date after some calculations are made (when a new person is involved in the task, etc).

If you want to have 100% control of the start/end date of a task, you have to set the task type as "Fixed Duration" and you have to uncheck the "Effort driven" property. Thus, only you will be able to set the start date (or the end date) of the task.
