Tasks often change assignee, start and end dates, and dependencies before they are finished. You can update all those aspects of a task, along with its status.
- Click Tasks in the project navigation bar.
- On the Task Summary page, find the task folder containing the task you want to edit.
- Click the task name.
- On the Task Details page, click Edit.
On the Edit Task page, make your changes and click
If you change the end date of a task that has dependent successor tasks, you
may want to change the start and end dates of the successor tasks. For example,
if a successor task normally starts on a Friday, and is moved out two days by a
change in a predecessor task, its new start date is Sunday (if it uses a
seven-day calendar) or Tuesday (if it uses a five-day calendar).
- To change the start and end dates of all successor tasks, click Move Dependent Task Dates Forward/Backward x Days. All dependent task dates are moved forward or backward by the same number of days that the original task end date was moved.
- To apply the date change to only the selected task, without changing the start and end dates of any successor tasks, click Do Not Change Dependent Task Dates.
- If your end date change impacts successor tasks that you do not have permission to view, these tasks are not changed.
- If your end date change impacts successor tasks that you have permission to view, but not to edit, these tasks are marked for change approval by an administrator. The start and end dates for tasks that you have permission to edit are changed.
- Successors of tasks that are marked for change approval are not changed until approved by an administrator.
- From this page, you cannot change the start and end dates of successor tasks selectively. You must change all or none of them. To edit the start and end dates of selected successor tasks only, select Do Not Change Dependent Task Dates, then edit each selected task manually.
