Need Clarification on Specific Tasks RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.

    I'm noticing there are specific times in tasks (e.g. Start - 8:00 AM, Finish - 9:12 AM) when they should reflecting a normal working day (Start - 8:00 AM, Finish - 5:00 PM) which is already set in the Options.

    Is there a reason Project calculated these times this way? There are several tasks on projects that have the same issue.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Wendi,

    What is the duration? Do the tasks have a task calendar that is different from the Project calendar? Is a resource assigned that has working times beyond the normal Standard calendar?

    There can be many reasons why certain tasks do not follow the normal 8-5 working day, but we need more information before we can help further.

  • Hello Wendi

    This often occurs when the PWA server calendar is not setup the same as Project client schedule options.   Check the the PWA administrator and ask to see if the calendar is  using the default 8 hour day and then check options/schedule and very that it is a 8 hour day.  Sometimes, project managers change to 7.5.

    All-in-all, the two need to have same hours per day.
