Add support for tasks without dates in Gantt chart
It would be nice if tasks could be added to gantt that are missing a start date, end date or both dates.

For our use case this feature is not only useful, but mandatory. We are visualising a project workflow that goes through several phases and steps. Within our application, the client fills in the dates for these tasks and milestones as the project progresses. Not all dates are filled-in at all times, however when a project manager creates a gantt chart, he wants to see all the tasks. A task without a date is an information in itself. 

Currently we have to create a fake date entry for tasks without dates.

Hi Ivan,

In-case both start and end dates are not available, then the task should only be displayed in the left section and nothing to be shown in the timeline.

In-case only start date is available then it has to be shown on the timeline as start milestone (forward triangle).

In-case only end date is available then it has to be shown as end milestone (backward triangle).

Hello,

Thank you for submitting this feature request. Could you elaborate more on how you envision the way such tasks with no date would be displayed in the Gantt? I assume you would want such tasks to be displayed only in the treelist section on the left hand side and not to be visible in the timeline section, in which the tasks are displayed based on their start and end dates.
