This post will be short, but very useful. I have a question from one of my Blog Readers: “Hi Nenad,
I discovered hat my task number usually starts from 1 instead of 0.
Kindly assist on this.”
I will show the Solution using MS PROJECT 2016.
Very often when you open MS PROJECT you will se this screen:
Well, blank screen is not user friendly at all. I will put three simple Tasks and I will get:
I see my Tasks, but I do not see Project Summary Tasks. To see this Task (and it as always Task with ID = 0), I can choose:
When I check this Checkbox, I will get:
So, at Task 0 (Project Summary Task) I can see Total Duration of my Project, Start date, End date, Total work (if I add this column in my view etc.). So I strongly recommend that you always have this Task turned on. And to avoid clicking to the Checkbox about over and over again you can follow this steps:
With that option you will always have Task 0 displayed when you open new Project.
And, remember, keep this option, always on!
