Why doesn't MS Project change project end date if tasks are finished ahead of schedule?

Why doesn't MS Project change project end date if tasks are finished ahead of schedule?

Let's say for the sake of simplification that I have a project with 3 tasks: A B and C.

"When you mark a task as 100% complete, MS Project assumes the task when exactly to schedule. The application does not consider the system date when calculating (as often project managers would be updating a schedule based on information received on earlier days).

MS Project will dynamically calculate a new end date for your schedule, but you need to set up the schedule appropriately and enter the correct information as well.

Look for a book called Dynamic Scheduling with Microsoft Office Project 2007 to learn more."
