Expected Results: Task remains as one day duration with Start/Finish Date of 5/30/2018
Actual Results: Task increases to 10 days, pushing the finish date out to 6/12/2018
This is due to the resource being allocated at a low amount on the project. MSP is increasing the duration of the task, which pushes out the Finish Date of the task, as it will take more time to complete the tasks based on the ETC on the assignment and the amount of time they are allocated (available) to work on the task.
Note: When exporting a project from Clarity to MSP, the allocation assigned to the resource in MSP is the allocation assigned to the resource on the project on the day the project is exported to MSP.
Release: All Supported
In order to minimize the risk of dates changing there are a few options:
Ensure that the allocation amount covers the date the project is opened in MSP
This will reduce the risk of the task date being pushed out.
