Currently the Actual start and Actual end datetime fields are required fields. This is an error in principle as the Actual start and Actual End cannot be required for the following reasons:
The practical application of using the Gantt for Planned vs Actuals purposes of any kind is that a task is initially planned by setting the Planned Start and Planned End date of the task. A planned task has not necessarily begun, so there is no actual start or end of the task. For this reason, the users cannot yet fill the actual start and actual end. Therefore the Actual Start and Actual End should allow for the fields to be non-required fields.
