hope someone can shed some light on this issue for me.

I'm not very involved in scheduling, so hopeully somebody can help me
out.

I don't know if this has always been the case and I never noticed it
before or if its a recent change, but when a job is partially completed
and then rescheduled why does the JobHead.StartDate field get updated?
It doesn't make sense to me and I had thought that the Job Start date
was set in stone once it was actually worked on.

Is is supposed to work this way and does it make sense?

I think it is probably designed this way, although I haven't checked.
Rather than thinking terms of a Job start date and activity, it is
probably more appropriate to think of it in terms of the last system
schedule start date. It is derived from the scheduling process and
allows vantage to create anchor date for forward scheduling or
calculated date from a backwards schedule.

I think the operations dates, on completed operations, don't move. In
terms of historical/activity reporting then I would tend to look at
labour activity.
