    I am just trying to get round, when I would want to use manual or auto tasks? E.g. what scenarios

  • Hi PPM Dave,

    In my schedules I tend to use AutoScheduled tasks 99% of the time.  I may use manually scheduled tasks in the following scenario.

    1. During the planning phase, when I'm uncertain of all of the data

    2. During the execution phase, when I have a task that is not dependent on another one - though of course I could easily put a Start No Earlier Than constraint on an AutoScheduled task to do the same thing, but I quite like the fact that the Gantt Bar is visually different.

    You've got a lot of questions coming in, you might be wise to invest in a book or online course...?   It would be a good investment short, mid and long term...
