Project plan / resource query

Project plan / resource query

Planners - please help

I have been asked to update an already started project plan to detail personnel resources. It has a task heading of 'Company Resources'and then 30 sub tasks each being a task to be done. My problem is that as I move down the list and change start and finish dates for some reason the dates of other tasks are being changed? Can you advise on what the contraint type should be? Non of the tasks are linked? I would be most grateful for any advice.


RE: Project plan / resource query

If the tasks aren't linked, then there should be no links.


RE: Project plan / resource query

Yes I understand this, so why do dates change across the spread when I change start and finish dates???

RE: Project plan / resource query

Just some check:
- have the resources a personalized calendar (vacation period)? Turn the calendar to default, if not needed.
- have you done any kind of resource leveling?
- is the Layout of the link "visible"? (reformat it by means of the Wizard)
