Project File Sync with SharePoint online across time zones RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a Project file that we have synced with an 0365 SharePoint site.  The project teams are working in US Central Time and Vladivostok Russia.  The original Project file is set up in Vladivostok time.  Users see the SharePoint Task Dates in their local time.  However, when the project manager opens the file in Central Time Zone, the project file automatically reschedules start dates that are on Monday in Vladivostok (which start on Sunday in US Central Time) to non-weekend US Days and then updates the SharePoint Tasks.  If the project manager in Vladivostok opens the file, more auto-scheduling occurs to move Start Dates to non-weekends in Vladivostok.

    Is there anything we can do to avoid the auto-rescheduling based on the time zones that will not affect the file if we need to change the Start and Due Dates due to late starts?
