Issue/Introduction

Autoscheduling in the PPM Gantt is grayed out for one or more Projects even though the resource has Project - Scheduler in Browse access at the Global level. 

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Create a new project and set it as a template

2. Go to the Tasks tab and select 'Gantt' from the Tasks tab drop down

3. Select the Autoschedule icon from the 'Gantt' menu

Expected Results: Autoscheduling options such as 'Autoschedule with Options', 'Autoschedule with Publish', are available to select to Autoschedule

Actual Results: All autoscheduling options are grayed out

Environment

Applies to all supported PAS environments for specified releases.

Resolution

If the project is a Template (Template is checked), then this behavior is by design. Templates are excluded from Autoscheduling.

To workaround this behavior, temporarily make the project a non template by unchecking the Template checkbox on the project.
