Detect changes made to calendars between two projects in P6

The Claim digger or Schedule Comparison is a widely used tool in P6 to compare between two projects and detect the differences.

One of the main shortage of the Claim Digger or the Schedule Comparison tool is detecting the changes in calendars.

The tool will not detect any revisions in calendars working hours or changing from Project to Global calendar if both have the same description.

Claim Digger will tell us nothing about calendars other than whether the name of the calendar is different.

The story behind the negative float in P6

The negative float is a very popular hot topic in the scheduling field and it’s generated when the late dates are less than the early dates and usually it’s accompanied with a delay in the project, and a lot of project management professionals think that the only reason for a negative float is because a constraint that has been used in the schedule. Although the first thing you look for when you see a negative float is the constraints that are applied to the schedule, but that not the only reason that generates the negative float in P6.
