  • Hi Jeff,

    Simply enter the extra tasks below the existing ones; Indent/Outdent as necessary.

  • Hi Jeff,

    I want to be sure to understand. You need to add in your project an additional group of tasks summarized under a phase?

    Do you use MS Project Pro or Sdt 2013? Or Project Server with PWA (the web scheduling interface)?

    It is actually the basis of MS Project. I'd advice you to read MS Project sdcheduling documentation on the web and watch youtube tutorials since there is a lot to say. This could be a 5days training to learn from scratch how to schedule with MS Project.

    Basically:

    • Choose if you want to schedule manually or automatically
    • Enter tasks' names
    • Choose the indentation level
    • Enter duration, relationship between tasks
    • Create your resources (work, materials or cost)
    • Assign resources to tasks

    Please find here a couple of article about basic scheduling with MS Project:

    Hope this helps.
