Unexpected Gantt Bar Length in the Assignments section of a Task

If you add a Gantt bar to the Assignment section of a task, the bar doesn't always display correctly.

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Create a two day project (Ex: 9/24-9/25) in Clarity PPM
2. Add a resource to the team
3. Create a task with the same dates as the project
4. Assign the resource to the task to where the assignment will also have the same dates
5. On the assignment list, go to Options -> Configure
6. On the List Column Section -.> Fields, delete the TSV (ETC By Period) field
7. Click on New to add a Gantt
8. For the Gantt properties:
  • select Start for the Start Date Attribute
  • Select Finish for the Finish Date Attribute
  • Select a Specific Date for the Time Scale Start Date, enter a Start Date of 3 weeks in the past (Ex: 9/3)
  • Select 'Week' for the Time Scale, and enter 5 for the number of periods
9 Click on Save and Return
10. On the Gantt bar for the assignment, the week of 9/24 is the fourth time period on the Gantt, and there is a bar that fills approximately a third of the week of 9/24 as expected
11. Go to Configure -> List Column Section->Fields->Gantt and decrease the number of weeks from 5 to 4 (in order to make the week of 9/24 the last week that shows on the Gantt)
12. Click on Save and Return

Note: If the assignment has a start date after Monday, (for example: Start on Tuesday 9/25 and Finish on 9/26) the Gantt bar would just disappear after Step 12.

Expected Results: The Gantt bar on the week of 9/24 still covers approximately a third of the period
Actual Results: The Gantt bar on the week of 9/24 covers the entire period
