Cannot be started before <date>

Deadlines are useful but another date that can be useful to help prioritise work and cut down the noise is "Cannot be started before" or "Cannot start earlier than" so I don't even need to think about those tasks before that date.

Perhaps they're greyed out. Perhaps they loiter in a Not Yet Actionable column and then an automation transfers them into my backlog when that day arrives.

Of course that would then invoke a bunch of date-related automation work which doesn't yet exist … but if it did then imagine the possibilities with this and the Deadline field. "If deadline is today then send email", "If start no earlier than ⇐ today move to Backlog", "while deadline > today style outline = dashed" 😋
