For project managers that want to learn even more about Project Insight’s powerful, intelligent scheduling, this session goes into more advanced functionality. Learn how to set up tasks that auto-calculate, leverage constraints, even link projects together!
Duration Delay Column
When a delay in duration does occur, Project Insight records that in a Duration Delay column, so that the project manager can see what has happened, this is available on the Display Options.
- Duration defaults as a column to compare the Delay to
- Add "Duration Delay" column
Hard Code in a Duration Delay
Project Insight will automatically set the duration delay, but you as a project manager or scheduler can also hard-code a delay in, see more in this article: Duration as whole working days.
Calculation from Actual Dates
Your projects in PI can be scheduled to calculate from Actual Start and End dates both on the Project and Global levels, to learn more about this feature see the documentation about Task Actual Dates here.
Constraints set rules for scheduling a task based on the info below, for more see the Constraints article here.
- the relationships between Tasks
- the dates set by the Project Manager
- A combination of both relationship and dates
Cross Project Dependencies
Navigate to project Views and select Options. The tab in the middle is for Cross Project Dependencies. This allows Project Managers to select tasks from the projects you list in this screen when editing task predecessors.
