Task progress update from PWA moving the start and finish dates RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are using PWA to submit the tasks progress (% Work Complete). When people are sending their statuses and project plan is updated with the % Complete, Tasks' start and finish date are moving so some other date. First I thought its happening for Fixed work tasks as project scheduling engine is trying to accommodate the remaining work, but it is also happening for fixed Duration tasks. Is there any way that start and finish date stay the same?

    Also, we are experiencing some abnormal behavior when % complete is updated. For example, we are calculating SPI and when % complete comes from PWA, it calculates wrong (some other number). If we remove the % complete in Professional and reenter the same % complete, it shows the correct value. Anybody experiencing the same issue? Any solution or work around is greatly appreciated.

    We are on Project 2010 (14.0.7011.1000) SP2 MSO (14.0.7015.1000).
