Autoscheduling moving dates

    We have a project with only 14 tasks plus a summary task.  Each task is resource loaded with estimates.  There are no dependencies on the tasks.  Once of the tasks has one resource that is allocated at 25%, 57 days in duration with a start date of 10/10/16 and finish date of 12/30/16. There are no actuals and ETC of 114 hours.  When we auto-schedule in the Clarity Gantt (without resource constraints) the dates are moved to start of 1/2/17 and finish of 3/21/17.  Anybody come across this before?  If so, what was the reason and resolution?

    When is the resource allocated to this project?

    Is the resource allocated in other projects?

    Is the resource assigned to other tasks in this project?

    The resource is allocated to the project beginning 10/10/16.

    He is allocated to other projects, but we autoscheduled without Resource Constraints

    He is not assigned to other tasks on the project.

    I had a discussion with CA support on this and found the Clarity Gantt autoschedule is working correctly.  The allocation start date of the resource is causing the start date of the task to change accordingly since he is the only resource on the task.
