Sometimes task cannot be placed within strict timelines. In other words such tasks have no distinct start and end dates, but anyway it should be accomplished before certain date and time. This is task's due date. If the task has no start date - it has no milestones related on days and its execution is at discretion of employee. In this case employee is individually responsible for task performance timelines and can decide himself/herself when to start and complete it (but of course only before due date). If assigned employee has a large volume of other work, the task without start date can be postponed for the future, forgot and as result procrastinated.
