I was born and raised with Primavera but recenlty started using Asta as well to broden my knowledgebase. The addaptaion has not been smoth and i struggle with the idea that Asta is somehow superior to P6. But maybe it's just my way of thinking that is at fault?

Here is an example i struggled with all day today. 

Activity 15 is not started. 0% complete. Has both succesors and predeccesors. Yet somehow when i scheduled the project not only did it jump backwards so that it starts before it's predecessors are completed but it also starts (and ends) before the status update line / Datadate? 

How on earth can this be so? 

And in addition activity 4 has been marked as finished and i've set the actual date to be 2017-09-22.. yet when i schedule it jumps to actual start 2017-08-31! Eventhough its predecessors are completed at 2017-09-22.

To me this goes against all logic and reason. So either the program is faulty or there is something that i haven't taken into account. Which is it?

Hello. 

Your suggestion didn't result in any change but when i changed the "status line" in the options below that tick box the activity jumped forward to its more logical position. I find this very curious as the logic should have placed it after its predessecors no matter what date the status line has.

Hi Andrea

There is an option in reschedule that allows "Link around completed tasks" try that.

Best regards
