MS Project - New Tasks don't start at correct time; makes single day tasks 2-day tasks

MS Project - New Tasks don't start at correct time; makes single day tasks 2-day tasks


First post ...

Using MS Project 2016

When I enter single day tasks (forecasted) they split across 2 days. On further investigation, it's because MSP changes the start time for these tasks to irregular times, such as 11:12 AM, then the 1 day task spans across 2-days.

Weird thing is; when you status the program - it often corrects to what it should be. . .

Checks I've done to try fix it:
- Calendar is 8AM - 5PM, no work 12:00 - 13:00 (lunch)
- Project Settings is 8AM - 5PM
- 8 hrs per day
- 5 days per week
- Tasks set to as soon as possible
- Resourcing set to 100% for all tasks

Anyone able to see what's going on?
