Auto Schedule in Microsoft Project

Copper Contributor

Hello Tech Community,


I've a MS Project file that was created several years ago, and the auto schedule in is not updating the dates automatically.


Any recommendations.


Thank you, Anand

First of all, what version of Project was used to create the original schedule? What version are you using now?


What exactly do you mean about Project "not updating dates automatically"? A screen shot may be helpful.



Hello John,


The project version is Microsoft Project Professional 2021 (desktop version). And in an existing project file created using Microsoft Project Professional 2019 (desktop version), when I enable auto schedule, the dates are not getting updated automatically.


Please advise.


Thank you, Anand


Again, what exactly do you mean, "the dates are not being updated automatically"? Are all the tasks manually scheduled and you are converting to auto-scheduling, or what?
