Duplicate Groups many a time under tabs in MSP Professional 2016 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I find duplicate groups of commands under tabs like Task in MSP Professional 2016. For example if I have to add a summary task, I find 2 Insert Groups with Summary Task Button. Why there is a similar functionality provided side by side? Thanks

  • When you insert a summary task, the first task is the summary task, the second the first sub-task. You can add more tasks below them which will also be summarised by the first task by default.

  • Did you install Project 2016 on top of an earlier version of Project?  There were some reports of similar issues when a newer version of Project was installed on top of a earlier version and the Global.mpt files were not updated.

  • Yes, I did. I have  MS Project Professional 2013. Is there any easier way of managing this issue than uninstalling MSP 2013?  Do we have to rename or move some template files etc?  Any options from within MSP using File-> Info. Pl. do let me know . 

    P.S. Hope you could zoom the image

  • I just used File->Options-> Customize the Ribbon and from the Pane on the Right hand side I removed those groups of commands which appear in duplicate. The problem is solved. The Ribbon does not have duplicate groups.  However some groups like Insert are not available for customization.
