Shifting the data date on multiuser / multiproject environment using P6
On my previous project, the lead planner used to request all the schedulers to close all projects and logout so that he could shif the data date.
Now, I have been assigned to a different project and now I'm working directly on the client's P6 system. Our project is just one of the projects part of the EPS. The data date of our project is December 30, 2011, and the client's data date is January 13, 2012. I have been requested to shift the data date for our portion to January 13 and the client will do the same for January 27. Our project has links to other projects that are being done by other companies. The client manages the master schedule.
Having different data dates on differen projects, create problems? What is the proper procedure or way of shifting the data on a multiuser (network) / multiproject environment?
