Start date, end date & completion date?

Q: ? about using End Date vs. Completion Date for workflows being used with properties: how are those dates calculated? 

A: Start Date and End Date are generic fields for general use. COMPLETION DATE allows you to pick another activity which must be completed before this dependent activity is given a date. You a can say activity 2 is calculated as 5 days after activity 1 is completed. Activity 1 could be to send an email to your photographer and you want to give him 5 days before you check on status of job. If email is completed 3 days late you still give 5 days because it is calculated on the completed date. Start/End dates do not have database fields. . They are generic... when using them you can't adjust the date like you can for fields in the database like list date and expiration date etc...
