automation for changing project periods?

Has anyone crafted any solutions that involve changing a project's Planned Finish Period? We're looking at locking this field and only allowing updates via a change request process. It's usually pretty trivial to update a field on a request from an execution step with values a related request, but I'm concerned that there's more to the Planned Finish Period than just updating kcrt_fg_pfm_project and pm_projects......

On Project's workflwow, you can create :

  1. a waiting decision step.
  2. an execution step, which will contains logic to find the newest end_period value.



On Change request side, you can create just after your approval step :

  1. an execution step, which is a "workflow jump"

The problem will be the access security grants. You can still hide decision buttons.

You can still use PL/SQL, and create a function which will alter user_id as a workaround for security access.
