Issue/Introduction

Tasks that are not marked as milestones in Clarity are getting converted to milestones when exporting the project to Microsoft Project. 

Why would this be?

Environment

Release : All

Component : CA PPM Microsoft Project

Resolution

This may occur if the tasks have a duration of 0 days in Clarity. The task start and finish dates would be the same, including the same time. While Clarity does not force a task having a 0 day duration to be a milestone, Microsoft Project does. 

These tasks would need to be updated in Clarity to have a duration greater than 0 days so that Microsoft Project will stop converting them to milestones.
