New tasks automatically on the critical path RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a file (project) and every time I add a new task it appears on the critical path, regardless of the duration or precedence relationships. I've checked the options and I don't see anything that might be causing that.

    This is the only file where this is the case and the creator of the file, a student, does not know why this is.  It was not his intent to do that.

  • Do you mean that they show up as red bars?

    Check file, options, advanced for the checkbox "Calculate multiple critical paths".

    Also check the definition of "critical". Is it less than or equal to 0 total slack?

    In the schedule table, what is the total slack?
