Project Start Date – modification after project was saved. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I created new project with  a start date 01/April/2015 and saved it. Next, I change the start date to 14/April/2015 in the setup.

    However still in statistics windows I see the start date as 01/April/2015. Additionally, every new task has start date 01/April/2015.

    Could you please advise me how can I change that?

  • Project Start date is setup under Project, Project Information. Which setup are you talking about?

    make sure you have Service pack 1 installed.

    If you have set a must start date or actual progress for 1st April then Project won't move them, so start date will remain on 1st April.

  • Thank you for your prompt reply.

    1.Firstly I set up project start date as 01/04/2015 in Project, Project Information and in File, Project Information and save document.

    2. Afterwards, I modified start date into 14/04/2015 in the same places.

    However, the date in Project, Project Information - Statistics was still 01/04/2015 (please check screenshot).

    3. But finally, after several openings and closing of the document the date in Statistics is correct (hard to say what is the reason).
