  • 1. Multiple project managers
    We need to split ownership of very large projects among multiple project managers, although there are dependencies between these subprojects. Master/subprojects doesn't work very well on Project Server. Following guidance from a user group, I'm experimenting with publishing a project, then having "subproject" owners republish with change of manager some parts of the project plan. That seems to change who receives the updates just fine. However, and here's the actual question: HOW CAN I DISPLAY PROJECT OWNER IN THE MSPROJECT VIEW? I can't find a field for that. I need to be able to see which section of the project is managed by which person. Any other advice about how to set up subprojects in project server, and yet maintain dependencies across subprojects?
  • 2. unable to find specified resource
    What does this error mean? Microsoft Project Server was unable to find the specified resource. If the problem continues, contact your server administrator. We haven't been able to find what we're doing wrong. We're no experts at Project Server, and any help would be much appreciated.

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

Any ideas how to get some consistency with these?

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

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.
