Task are not Scheduled as expected in MS PROJECT 2013

My Blog reader has a problem: “Hi Nenad. I am creating a simple Project with four Tasks. Task 1 is predecessor for Task 2, etc. I do not have a right Schedule, and they all start at the same date. When I hit F9 button everything works fine. How to avoid hitting F9”.

The answer is very simple. I am going to use Microsoft Project 2013!

First I’m going to create four Tasks:


and I’m going to link them:


As you can see, all Tasks have a same Start date. When I hit F9, my Project will look like this:


Everything is fine now. If you don’t want to use F9, and you want that Tasks are rescheduled when you edit them you should turn this option on:


and then:


and you will get what you wanted without F9 button!
