Creating a new Program
All the configuration options can be changed at any phase of the Program's lifecycle.
If a Task with no Start and / or End Dates is added to the scope of a Program, the app will pick the Original Estimate value as its default and set the task Start date to creation date.
Following this logic, if no Original Estimate value is available the app will again use the creation date as Start Date and when the End Date is empty, then it picks the resolution date (if the issue was Resolved) instead. This usually means that a Task will be set as a 1-day duration starting on the Creation date. With Original Estimate mapped as the Start or End Dates, it will represent the duration of a Task.
As a consequence, in such a scenario, the "Auto bottom up" task mode will be applied to tasks with empty date fields to avoid data corruption when the task are structured automatically using presets.
In the case of Sprint and Version tasks synchronization, the "Auto top down" is used by default.
