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.

i’m new to project; just a couple days into it actually - what i’m trying to do is schedule a reoccuring task specific to date and time. by date is easy enough, but i want it to start at 9:30 am and end at 10:00 am.

i also notice that task itself will show the duration in outline level 1 as 8hrs long when the duration in outline level 2 shows the duration as .5hrs; why is it doing this?

thanks for any thoughts/relies

To schedule a recurring task to a specific time:

1. Tools | Options | View-tab and set "Date Format" to an item that shows the time.

2. Insert | Recurring task... enter the task name; set the duration to 0.5h; use the calendar to select the date for the first occurrance; overtype the default start time with your 9:30AM start time; click OK.

As for your duration issue, the duration of a sub-task is the duration for the task; the duration of a summary task is the elapsed duration from the start of the earliest sub-task to the finish of the last sub-task.
