  • 2. Resource View not updating
    All, My project server has something wrong with it. When my project managers publish anything new to the Project Web Access web site it never shows up. I think it is a cache problem but I do now know how to turn caching off inside of IIS. But Im not positive that it is a cache issue so any help would be great. Jake
  • 3. Adding a Schedule Contingency
    I'd like to hear thoughts on how to add a separate schedule contingency to a project plan. That is, PERT and other estimating techniques will encourage you to stretch the duration of the tasks to make them more accurate, but what if you need to add a x% contingency to cover overall risk: a separate "contingency" task? a lag between two milestones?

predecessors and successors

Postby Ingrid » Wed, 30 Jul 2003 15:57:53 GMT

I am using 4 project files linked to each other in a master
file.  The predecessors and successors don't seem to have
any pattern for when they appear and when they don't.  Eg.
a task in one project(project A) may have three successors
in another one (project B), yet only two show up in project
A in the task list of a gantt chart.  


I've tried turning the "show external sucessors" on and off
in Tools>Options but this doesn't actually hide them all or
show them all - I still get some showing and some not
showing.  

Any ideas how to get some consistency with these?

Thanks, 
Ingrid

I think that if all the subprojects are expanded then you will see the
linkages.
But other than that, I find that they are somewhat capricious.

2.External Predecessors and Successors

I have many External Predecessors and Successors within my schedules.
When looking at Tools, Options, View - Cross project linking options for 
'project name' some of the link show and some do not! It seems not to be 
consistent which ones it omits and which ones it doesn't.

Has anyone seen (or not seen) this before?

Does anyone have a remedy?

Cheers,

3.Display Predecessor and Successor Task Names

I want to display for each task row any predecessor and successor task names 
that the task has.
I want to do this because the procject is relatively large.
I think I should use a customized text field. However, I am unsure how to 
code the formula to pull the task name.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks

4.synching predecessor and successor dates based on F-S link

Hi folks,

I'm working with MSP2003 and PS2003.  I have a project with afew tasks that have predecessor - successor relationships.  They are F-S.  Some have a lag, some have a lead time, some have neither.  The issue I have is that when the finish date changes for a predecessor task, the start date for the successor remains unchanged.  I've checked the calculation settings and it is set to recalculate automatically.

For example

Task 115 is a predecessor for task 117.  T115's end date is June 28.  T117's start date is June 30.  If I change T115's end date to July 7, the startdate for T117 remains set to June 30.

Thanks for any insights.

Jim
