In this blog I will show you a bug that I found when removing resource from the task
First, I will add two resources to the Project:
Then I will add two tasks to the Project with same duration –> 2 days:
Now, on the View tab, in the Split View I will click Details and I will get Task form in the lower part of the screen:
I will click anywhere in the Task Form and I will choose Work in the format Tab:
For the bug it is irrelevant whether the task is effort driven or not
Now, I will assign John and Mary to the Task 1 and Task 2:
O.K. Now I will, for example, remove John from the Task 2:
You can see that John has disappeared from the Task Form. But I decided to use the action button and to choose: “Increase total work because the task requires more person-hours. Keep duration constant” or “Increase the hours that resources work per day. Keep duration and work the same”.
After that you will get:
And John is back again. This is a bug. But it is only so called: “Display bug”. John is actually removed from the task but he is displayed in the Task form. I will remove him by clicking on Previous and then Next button.
When I click on the Previous button I will have cursor moved on the Task 1 and John and Mary displayed on the Task form (assigned to the Task 1):
When I click on the Next button I will have cursor moved on the Task 2 again and only Mary displayed on the Task form (assigned to the Task 2):
This was just one example of bug when removing resource from the task. There are several more occasions when this type of bug appears. So, be careful when you remove resource from tasks.
