Help with Schedule Finish Dates

QUESTION:

In Open Plan Professional for some reason the Schedule Finish Dates are not matching the Actual Finish Dates.   The Activity is progressed and completed.   Actual Finish Date is filled out and the task marked as Complete.  There is 0 Remaining Effort.   When I move the Time Now date forward, the Schedule Finish Dates move with it (Actual Finish Date stays the same).

ANSWER:

On the time now advanced settings, there should be an option called something like "actual dates override logic". If that option isn’t enabled, I think out of sequence progress can cause issues like you describe.
