  • 1. Reflecting both Fixed Fee and Time and Material Tasks in One P
    Thank you for your response John. Unfortunately this does not really help. Yes I use fixed costs, no problem there. Where it gets tricky is being able to filter on fixed fee tasks vs t&M tasks. Would you suggest creating a custom field to denote this? What I want to do is filter for T&M tasks and look at remaining work for forecast purposes.

  • 2. Reject a task assigment in PWA 2007
    In Project Web Access 2003 When you receive new task assignments, they are marked with the new assignment icon in the indicators column. If it necessary for you to reject an assignment, you can follow these steps: 1 In the Timesheet view or Gantt Chart, click the assignment in the table. 2 Above the table, click Reject and then click Yes. The assignment is removed from your Tasks list, and an update is submitted for the project manager. The project manager will then review the rejection. If the project manager accepts the rejected assignment, your name is removed as an assigned resource on this task in the project plan. How this would be done in PWA 2007? Thanks, Noe Cabrera
  • 3. Copying info into a Template - what causes the chaos and whats ok?
    I need to create a template. I know that is not a good option to copy durations into a new project, seems to cause chaos. If I imput durations into a template - is that ok or will it cause calculation problems etc further down the track I would normaly only copy Task Names into the Gantt Chart, is it ok to copy other fields eg text fields. -- Deb

I just created a project schedule using MS Project 2007 and I also created a 
baseline.   When I do a "View -> Tracking Gantt" I now see the task bars for 
my current schedule on top and baseline task bars just below them.  Why is it 
that some of the top task bars (for the current schedule) are colored red 
while others are colored blue?  I don't understand what this difference in 
color means.

4.why do task bars shorten when adding resources

I have two questions,

Why do task bars shorten when resource names are added to the ends and how 
can I stop this happening?

Also, when I want to extend the duration over which a repeating task occurs, 
the newly added events also appear in new lines beneath the original 
recurring task line. When these erroneous lines are removed, the additional 
repeat tasks also disappear from the row into which they were added. This is 
most annoying and I'd really appreciate some help sorting it out.

 Can someone please help?
