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

We have recently upgraded to Primavera 8.1 web version, its not been easy i had only just got used to P6 Enterprise. Anyway when i am creating projects or updating old ones and adding in relationships the start/finish dates are not moving unless i manually change them.

Can anyone please help im guessing its a setting i have but i cant find any info on this. I have the duration type set to fixed durations and units/time, i thought this might be the problem but it doesnt appear to be?

Thanks in advance

Thanks Daniel, i have been scheduling them (F9) but they seem to be pending when i check the status im really looking at how to force the scheduling without it pending, refreshing doesnt work.

 

Mohammed, check if 'hide empty' is ticked or if there are any filters on clear them all.Hope that helps

Hi Kath,

You need to press F9 to re-schedule or if you want automatic scheduling you need to tick that button in the scheduling options.

Regards,

Daniel
