Problem:

Is it possible to manually set the ‘Finish Time’ on Task items?

Resolution:

The default "Finish Time" parameter is automatic and cannot be modified.

A possible workaround would be to create a custom field.

1. Open the "Task" tab

2. Select Task | Advanced | Customize

3. Add a new field called ‘Finish Time’

4. Select a Date/Time data type

5. Set the default value

6. Click "Save"

Open a Task and select the "Custom" tab, this will display the "Finish Time" field.

A caveat to the above is you will still have the automatic value that occurs when you close the task.
