I have setup the Project Web app (PWA) environment and have multiple projects uploaded in the project center. I am using Power Bi as my data visualization tool. I need to set cross-project links for certain tasks, and I am able to set the links but the issue is that when a linked task date changes, the successor (in a different linked project task) doesn't update until I open the project the successor is located. This impacts my Power Bi reports as they don't update until I open the successor project. I've tried creating master projects or simply linking 2 distinct projects (not in master project)
is there something I can do (setting, etc.) that would cause the successor task in a different project to update automatically without the need to open the project?
There is no setting that you can change because this is the default behavior of the tool. In order for the cross-project link to be updated, the project must be opened and checked out. Hope this helps.
