In Project tab > Project Information, you can choose either forward or backward schedule (Schedule From:) for the entire project; not for the portion of the plan. My suggestion is you choose Schedule From: as Project Start Date, and insert a milestone task midway in the plan. On that milestone, set the deadline (Task Information > Advanced) rather than constraint type as Finish No Later Than. Former option gives you alert in the Indicator column that the milestone is missed and you can compress the schedule to recover, but the latter option will create a schedule a conflict and the schedule will not be achievable.
