Error Message "The resource is outside the original dates for task X in project X. The duration of this fixed-duration task will change to accommodate the resource assignment RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I've moved a project from an old resource pool to a new one and I'm now getting the following error message when I link the project to the new resource pool.

    "The resource is outside the original dates for task X in project X. The duration of this fixed-duration task will change to accommodate the resource assignment."

    Does anyone have a resolution to this?

    Thanks,

    It is not an error message.  It is a warning message that the new Duration of the task will be greater than its Fixed Duration amount.  I would suspect that their are calendar differences between the resources in the old pool and in the new pool.  For example, if you have an additional holiday nonworking time period on your resource calendars in the new pool, that could cause this situation.  Hope this helps.
