today I’m going to show you where is the difference between Task in progress and delay, with MS PROJECT 2016.
Let’s say that we have a simple Project with one single Task:
and that we have John as Resource:
and that we have John assigned to this Task:
Now, let’s say that John has worked on Monday (regularly), and I want to put that work in my Project like this:
I’ will get this:
Now, let’s say that John couldn’t work on Tuesday and Wednesday, because it was, for example, lack of electricity. The Task will be delayed. But ho to do it in MS PROJECT?
There are two easiest possibilities. First one is to split this Task like this:
So, I will choose Split Task button, and I will put cursor on Tuesday and I will mow the rest of the Task to Thursday, and I will get:
Second one is to move Task two working days ahead like this:
and I will get the same result as I’ve got when I split the Task.
