Hi guys,

How can I not show a task being splitted when the task is not progressing on schedule in MS project 2016? I used to use Primavera 3.1 and there was an option to remove this "necking". However, I can't seems to find this option in MS project 2016.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Hi Stanley,

Although I don't use MSP 2016, I don't believe any similar option exists in MSP - split parts are always shown in the Gantt.  As a workaround, you could try re-formatting the normal and critical split bar styles to the same as the task bar styles - this de-emphasizes the split without completely hiding it.

In the absence of resource assignments, then you would do well to eliminate the splits altogether.

Good luck, tom
