Tasks still start at 0800hrs when enterprise standard working calendar has just been updated to 0900hrs start RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I have tasks starting at 8 am in a plan.  The standard calendar has just been updated for work to start at 9 am, why do my tasks still start at 8?  I have tested this on new tasks too that don't have resources assigned and there are no task calendars set.

    any ideas?

    OK, no we are getting somewhere.  Do any of the existing tasks that still start at 8:00 AM have the following attributes:

    • They have a Start No Earlier Than constraint.
    • They are Manually Scheduled.

    Either of these could force the 8:00 AM start time.  Let us know and we will try to help you.

  • Steve -

    This is probably because the Start date of your project includes 8:00 AM as the Start time.  Click Project > Project Information and add 9:00 AM to the Start date and then click OK.  Does this solve the problem?  Please let us know and we will try to help you.

  • Hi Dale, thanks for the reply, I have made that change and it doesn't solve the problem.

  • Hi Dale, actually when I create a NEW task and try your suggestion it does make the change from 8AM to 9AM and back again if I Undo.  But it makes no difference to existing tasks?

  • Hi Dale the particular one in question has a SNET constraint on it. It is not manually scheduled.  Does that sched any light on it?

  • Yep. all constraint dates include the time. Best practice is to have as few constraints as possible.
