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.

Dear All,

Do you know a way to do a filter to search (for example) for negative lags in a schedule?
In Claim Digger, the report shows relationship Id# and relationship lag, can these be used in a way or are only indicative?

Thanks & Regards,
J.S. Daniel

Dear Jihad,

There should be no way that can filter out lags as lag is a data between a predecessor and a successor. That means it involve two activities. Hence in one activity you cannot find 'lag' as a filterable data.

Using report to search is a way to do it.

Regards and happy reporting,

If you are asking how to create an activity relationship report, here’s how you do it.

1. On reports screen, click Add
2. Choose Activity Relationships as subject area
3. Choose fields you are interested in seeing.
4. Set filter as Lag < 0.

If you are asking something else, please rephrase.

Regards,
Bill

Dear Bill,

How can you create a report with subject area "activity relationships" not defined in P3e? And customizing this data is not wise thing to do.

If you want to get a listing of negative lag relationships, one way to get this is by creating a report.
Create a report with subject area activity relationships, show columns you are interested in, and you can filter where lag < 0.
