today I will explain two fields, not so often used in MS PROJECT 2016: Scheduled Start and Scheduled Finish. First I will create one simple Project with three Tasks, connected like this:
As you can see Scheduled Start is equal to Start field, and Scheduled Finish is equal to Finish field. and this is always true as long as Task is in auto scheduled mode. BUT! I wil schange, for example Task 2 from Auto to Manual scheduled mode:
As you can see, nothing has changed. But, let’s say that I do not know, Start and Finish date for this Task, And I will put TBD in those fields:
So, even I do not actually know when my task is about to begin (maybe because I do not know who will work on it, when those Resources will be available), I still have Scheduled values based on the known data 8which is Duration in my Example).
Good to know that, and very useful fields.
