Hi,

 

We are looking for a function which would alow us to keep the start date of a task equal to the current date. So everyday the current today line moves forward so does the start date of a task. This should be done automatically. Is there a function for this?

 

Thanks

 

Oliver

On the Project ribbon, use the Update Project dialog window to "Reschedule uncompleted work to start after:" todays date. This will automatically impose a Start-no-earlier-than constraint on unstarted tasks whose start date is earlier than today. It will also delay the Resume date of any in-progress tasks. If you use resource leveling, remove the levelling before updating, then restore it afterwards.
