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.

Hello all, 

I have leveled 2 resources in a simple programme.

After levelling,the commencment of their associated activities are being delayed by 2 years from the data date.

I cannot see any other incriminating features of these activities:

- there are no constraints associated with these activities where these resources are assigned

- the resource and activity calendars are aligned

- the resource levelling and scheduling settings are completely blank, i.e. there are no unusual settings turned on.

WTF ?!?

Hi Jean-Michel,

how can you expect a reasonnable answer with such a few details?

* you should check the resource details, and specifically the Units and Price tab:

the by default Effective date is the 1st of january in the year the resource was created in the database; when the resources are leveled, P6 reschedules the activities according to this date; for example, the activity is scheduled to start dec 10, 2019 prior to leveling, and the resource is only effective jan 1st, 2020; the activity will be rescheduled as from this date after leveling

* you should check also the resource assignments in the other projects in you database

I hope this will help
