When creating new tasks in Microsoft Project (MSP), after saving the file back to PPM and re-exporting to MSP, the tasks move to the bottom of the project (or bottom of the summary task if added under a phase/summary task). Symptoms can also be seen if clicking F9 to update the MSP scree, where tasks will then end up out of order.
Steps to Reproduce:
Expected Results: The tasks remain in the same order (Task 5 displays in between Task 2 and Task 3)
Actual Results: The newly created task (Task 5) shows up at the bottom of the project
This is due to a setting in Microsoft Project
This applies to all supported PAS environments for all releases.
