We decided to go for an Undo function in stead of a Lock plan function and have now implemented the first step of Undo for the plan - the ability to undo the latest date change. We are planning to add functionality to the Undo function (ability to undo other actions etc.) in the near future.

Hi Nian!
Thanks for sharing you idea with us. I understand your concern around this and I brought this up with Product Development. There are no quick fixes around this unfortunately but most possible to be fixed in next year.

There is a work around by setting read access in plan, which makes sure that not all members can change activities.

Here you can read more about what this access means.
https://help.projectplace.com/wiki/index.php/Access_to_To.
To set access rights simply go to the toolbar for Plan and click on Settings menu (cog wheel) in the right corner and choose "Access Rights" There you set the access level for the different groups. So make sure you have created groups in People before you continue. For this you would need to be an administrator in the project. Hope this can help a little.

Best regards,
Silvija

We have the same issue.
It is superfrustrating that PP moves dates around at a whim. Like this we completely lose track!

Same here! We really would give more "power" to our team members in administrating their part of the plan on their own. As the plan is prone to be changed by accident (especially when moving the plan with the mouse), we would love to be able to lock an activity after making changes to it.

In Q2/Q3 we are going to make updates to the Plan tool. One of the things we are thinking of introducing is versions for the plan. In this way it will be possible to view how the plan looked like at a given point in time.

If locking the plan still will be relevant after we introduce versions remains too see. Your idea will be added as an input to that work.

We decided to go for an Undo function in stead of a Lock plan function and have now implemented the first step of Undo for the plan - the ability to undo the latest date change. We are planning to add functionality to the Undo function (ability to undo other actions etc.) in the near future.
