Hi

How do we define an Iterative Task e.g. biweekly Meetings? in MS Project ?
Thanks

RE: Iterative Tasks such as bi-weekly Project Meetings

Other than the Insert Recurring Task on the menu?

Hi All,
I have assigned Work hrs to the Sub-tasks; It adds up as the Work Hours for the Parent Task (e.g. Meetings)
When I assign Resources to the Iterative Task, it messes up the Total Work hrs for the Parent;

I am doing anything wrong while assigning the resources for the Meeting?

Thanks

RE: Iterative Tasks such as bi-weekly Project Meetings

Seems to work OK for me.  How are you assigning the resources?

Hi
I got it; Now I am using "Customize Assignment" Screen ;
If the Weekly meeting lasts one hr,
I am entering as follows for each Meeting1 , Meeting 2 :
Task Type = Fixed Work

Resource     %    Work

Name1      100   1 h
Name2      100   1 h

It is OK now
Thanks
