Ms project dates not updating
You are putting down the poles and your friend are attaching the net. Choose what kind of Link Type you would like from the drop down-list.
The main considerations to make are listed below: Project provides a lot of help to spot these potential problems.
While such automated scheduling features are usually helpful, mastering them requires a complete understanding of how they are designed to work.
If you try to link a task or change the date of a task and MS Project doesn’t cooperate, there are several justifications Project may have for insisting on certain dates.
These two tasks are of Start to Start link type because your friend needs to wait until you have started your activity but he does not need to wait until your are finished with your task. Start to Finish (SF) When you lay a foundation to a house with concrete you could have two tasks, Lay foundation (Task A) and Deliver Concrete (Task B).
The SS link type does not require that both task starts simultanously. Finish to Finish (FF) Using the same example as above you can also say that you need to be finished with putting down the poles before (Task A) before your friend is able to finish his task of attaching the net (Task B). Task A is not possible to to completed before Task B. Press CTRL and click on the Start-date of the second task. In most cases, Project is not misbehaving; you need to understand what Project assumes when it schedules tasks.
