Issue/Introduction

Description:

This behavior is working as designed when launching the project from Clarity to MSP:

  • A task with no Actuals or ETC and 0% completed: It will set duration to 0 days.

  • A task with no Actuals or ETC and 100% completed: It will set duration with the right amount of days.

Solution:

  1. Go to the Task Object--> Views--> Task Properties--> Layout Edit.

  4. Go to the Task Object--> Attributes and select the Fixed Duration attribute and click the Default option.

  5. Submit it.

If "Fixed Duration" is set to 'yes', it will keep the duration shown in Clarity UI when launching the project to MSP.
