Move tasks with project

Hi all,

 

Is there any setting that allows tasks start date to be synchronized with the project start date?

We’ve got projects with tens of tasks and if, by any reason, the project start date is delayed or anticipated we’ve got to move all the tasks by hand. Is it possible to automate this action?

Regarding the resources allocated to the project, it would also be nice to automatically move their allocation with the project.

Can we do it in any other way, more efficient, than manually?

Thanks!

Nuno

Hi!

I'm facing the same situation several times.... In my company when we have new projects that are on approval process by client we typically create the project in Replicon, allocate the team and assign each resource to the specific tasks. This way we have the vision of the company resources allocation/availability – Capacity Management.

The problem we are facing several times is the need to “move” the project star date because, as the client approval process takes too long, the client decides to postpone the start date of the project (or even anticipate it).

Having the possibility to “move” the start date to another date, and automatically move the team allocation dates and tasks assignments dates, will make this process much easier. Nowadays we need to do it manually and is not uncommon to have projects managers delaying the projects creation in Replicon because thay are not sure the project will start in the date they are considering at the moment.... They consider that postponing the creation of the project in Replicon will probably decrease the need to do all the project staffing work again when the dates change.... It as a huge impact on our Capacity Management – the data is not accurate...

This feature is a must have for my company! Please do evaluate this.

 Regards

Hi Nuno,

Thank you for using Replicon community,

Currently, it would not be possible to automate change of task start date whenever project start date is modified. I have marked this as an idea and are reviewing the same.

Thanks,

We also have a need for this. The MS project integration tool can allow for the task dates to push but then MS Project removes the Department resource assignments on the project.   I had planned to use MS Project to update the dates and now I realize we cannot.   

If anyone has suggestions, please let me know.
