MS Project 2016: Error when adding an engagement request for a task during weekends RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    When trying to create a resource engagement for work on Saturday and Sunday on a named resource, we get the following error message ‘End date cannot be earlier then start date’.

    More info on the steps taken:

    • Task created in the Project WBS, altered the task calendar to weekend and enabled the checkbox ‘Scheduling ignores resource calendars’
    •  Assigned a named resource to the task (Named resource has standard workdays calendar set up on Project server)
    • Creation of an engagement request by using the ‘Fix in Engagement Inspector’
    • When clicking 'ok' in the engagement information window, the system throws the error ‘End date cannot be earlier then start date’

    Anybody has a solution for this?
