    Tasks within a Gantt chart

     

    Live - 14.3

    Test - 15.3

     

    Is anyone able to explain the following to me?

     

    In the Test environment I have generated one of our project templates, I amend each project task date to the relevant start/finish. 


    If I then submit a time sheet which is then posted in the system for some reason it seems to alter the start date of the task I have added time to on the time sheet within the Gantt chart. 

     

    For example I set the start date of a particular task to - 09/11/2017, if I submit a time sheet ahead of time say the week after it will automatically update the task date with the same date of that week of the timesheet. 

    Can anyone explain this?

     

    Kind Regards

    Hi,

     

    Are you auto scheduling your tasks? Auto scheduling can probably explain this behaviour.

    Hi Jeevan

     

    As far as I'm aware we are not auto scheduling them. 


    I didn't know if it had anything to do with the 15.3 upgrade, I could be wrong.


    Kind Regards

    My understanding is that the start date of a task will be always set to the date of the first posted actuals.

    It does not matter what the start date in the schedule is.

    It has always been like that.

    True. I went into the impression that the Start Date was being pushed to a date sometime in the future, after reading the description. But if it is actually shifting back to cover actuals in the past, then I think you are correct.

    Bear in mind that you may enter time before the first posted actual which will make the start date earlier according ly.
