help for a complete novice RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I am a complete novice with MS Project and am hoping for some assistance

    I have a construction period of 12 months and want to ad an activity that occurs for one day a week every week for the duration.

    So for example: Construction = 01.01.16 to 01.01.17 (shows on program as a solid bar)

    Activity 1 = every Monday throughout construction period (i want to show on one broken line across the programme).

    I hope I'm making sense to someone, any help would be appreciated

  • Hi kbgooner,

    If the activity always repeats on Monday, you can create a recurring task.  You don't state what version of Project you are using, but if it is either Project 2010 or Project 2013, you'll find recurring tasks on the Task ribbon.  Click the drop down underneath Task (see below) and select Recurring task...

    I hope this helps.

  • Hi Julie

    Many thanks for the response, I have tried the above and it works but it repeats the task down the programme showing 1 day on each line.

    I was hoping to be able to show it all on one line
