New to MS Project - Changing start dates not being picked up.

Copper Contributor

This might be an easy question - I am new to MS Project. In a recent training group when changing the Start Date for a project in Project Information, the new start date is not picked up on the task list and Gantt chart? In a group of four people, my system was the only one ignoring the new start dates. 

Our training facilitator had never experienced this before and was unsure how to help....

I can duplicate your problem. You will need to do the following:

1. Click the File tab and then click the Options tab in the Backstage.
2. Click the Schedule tab in the Project Options dialog.
3. Scroll down to the bottom of the Schedule page.
4. In the Calculation section of the page, select the "On" option to turn on automatic recalculation of your project.
5. Click the OK button.

Hope this helps.

Thank you @Dale Howard. All done and working perfectly now!

 

Many thanks.
