Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Float Path Analysis

I am looking to view the first 5-10 critical paths to help manage a project where more and more activities are losing their float, but cant find a way of doing this easily in Asta.

Obviously the critical path is quite easy to see but the next logical path  behind it thatsay may have 1-2 days float in it is hard to find.

I have looked at using the logic path filter and numbering however these are not great as for instance if a milestone is constrained early then this is shown as a critical path which means the actual critical path  is not shown as logic path 1. It also seems to split at differing stages.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Chris

You can filter on Near Critcal tasks by deducting days from the total float.

Just deduct days from the total float and copy paste the results to a spreadheet

Best regards
