Task Drivers Ms Project 2010

Task drivers ms project 2010

Hopefully this will stop further occurrences of the problem. These are tasks with Resources, durations, sometimes completed, sometimes just have some work against them, sometimes no actual work yet. This behavior started immediately after the installation of the above software patch. The one shown on the Help tab is just for the shared Office components.

In either case, just wanted to give an update. Hi Brian, I, like a lot of users of Project as i can see, am experiencing this disappearing-task-names issue in Project in several projects. If you linked your tasks, the predecessor tasks will be displayed in the Task Inspector pane with their constraint types and the amount of lag time or lead time built in. Let us know and we will try to help.

For now if you are hitting this a lot then turning off multi level undo is certainly one option. When there is a single row, user can see additional gray lines showing where missing rows would be. We're still seeing this rather frequently in our organization.

As you created your project plan, you set several tasks aside because you did not know how long they would take. As you modify one of the tasks to reflect a change in one of the task's dependencies, you run into trouble trying to extend the schedule by two weeks. One good control on the versions is to limit the version of Project Professional that can connect to Project Server - this is set via Server Settings, Additional Server Settings. Your task is continually delayed as resources are leveled across the project. You can use the Microsoft Project task inspector to see how changes to one task affect the rest of the project.

Reproducing this problem is very hard. If you copy the Task Usage view from a default Global. Hi, I was amazed and very disappointed to see that this has been an ongoing but seemingly unrepaired issue for years.

We found the server patch to appy, but have been having trouble locating the client patch. Will try the scenario mentioned by Mira and update this forum.

Thank you for your feedback

What is the role of moderators? Several of my projects are experiencing the problem and it looks like Microsoft has not been able to provide a solution. Are there any work arounds if not?

There are hundreds of rows in the projects. Is there a work-around available?

Two of the tasks in your project plan are Test and Release. All of my hundred Project users were affected by the issue.

The type of constraint that is currently placed on the task, gembird nic-r2 driver x64 windows 7 including the date associated with the constraint. The Task Inspector pane appears to the left of your project information. This time however I closed and reopened the file again and the task names seem to be there so it is a complete mystery so far.

Your Answer

Hi Brian Is there any news on this issue? You can create your own Task Path Manually. Bob - Have you had any luck tracking down a resolution to this issue?

Email Required, but never shown. Will copying and pasting from a different local plan cause this issue?

This applies to the plans that used to open and work in the previous version correctly. Quick update on this one - we have found a repro and it appears related to multi level undo.

We have experienced it with some of our plans recently. We will get this patch installed on all our Project clients and configure Project Server to prevent connections from older versions. What is happening with your project files?

Did this solve your problem? Copying and pasting isn't directly implicated - but I'll discuss with my colleagues.

Expand your Office skills. The next time I open it, its gone. Use the Task Inspector pane to see how the task is affected by other tasks. This specific issue related to undo - so if you hadn't used undo in the session where these tasks names went missing it might be a different problem. But I can't keep having to fix my immense project plans every time I turn around.

Question Info

If you have saved then recovery from an archive copy would be the solution - or at least turn on archiving if you aren't using it so that you can recover it next time. And can you confirm Raja if you just see task names disappearing which was the bug we fixed or complete tasks?

In the meantime I have established that the task names are not actually lost. The following week, you must revise the plan for the task to accommodate a later start date.

And asking subtasks to be seen doesn't do anything. Office Office Exchange Server. We originally created the file using V and started seeing many task names disappear seemingly randomly. Both the task names and a notes field associated with it are disappearing. If you need more detailed information, post back and I'll go a bit deeper.
