Release Date 'dependency' on preceding milestones

As PM I should have direct visibility to changing a Release Date, so I understand why I can't make the Release Date dependent on Milestone dates. However, I would like to be alerted anytime a Milestone that my release is dependent on, is scheduled to continue after the designated Release Date. If the system isn't going to update the release date automatically, I need some trigger to remind me to review / push out the release date.

    I am adding my comments from the idea that was merged.

    Agree in principal. I would prefer to have my release date made variable based upon a set dependency (as with the ability to link dependencies on phases or milestones.

Allow a release date to be dependent on a phase

Merged
It would be great if I could make the release date dependent on a phase. That way, if the development phase takes longer, the release date would get pushed out automatically. We have many small releases at my company, and I need to be able to see...
