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.

Hi, I publish a website or Activity Layout and face a problem.  The timescale in the website or the Activity layout is totally not reflecting my project start and finish dates.   For instance my project start/finish dates are 2018 to 2020, the timescale is showing 2010 - 2011.  And, I am unable to change this timescale in anyway. I have tried changing Timescale from Page Setup but it doesn't help at all. Can anyone help?ThanksRegards

I have installed P6 R20 but it has same issue. In fact, changing anything in Page Setup does not have any effect in the website / layout.  Even, if in Page Setup, I select only Gantt Chart, I still see in the website/layout activity table.

Thanks Zoltan, but it didn't work. I have tried PS and PF and also I tried custom date.  I changed printer to PDF and also set the size to 17/11 However, the Activity Layout and in the website also, the timescale is not reflecting the real project dates.My project is from Feb-21 to Oct-21 but timescale showing is from 2011 to 2016. Anything else I can check?

thast very odd in the page setup under options you should be able to set the Timescale Start date (TRY setting that to PS) and you should be able to set Timescael Finish to (PF) Project Finish.

 

also on the page tab make sure that you select Fit timescale to 1 pages wide

and set the page size to 11x17 (make sure your default printer does 11/17 or set it to print ot a pdf printer)
