Tasks with no work but long duration done by non project resources RRS feed

  • Question

  • My project managers have tasks that they want to set up for a duration of time (usually a week) during which the client performs a review

    The want to set up the task with a resource called client; this is so they can send the client the plan the client sees their task in the resource column.

    My problem is that if they do that the work includes the work the client will do. I cannot see how to set up the task with zero work. I'm not too sure how to create the resource: how can that task be marked as complete?

    Any advice?
