Tip: Project management Schedule your project from a start time if you can.Even if you know the date by which a project must be complete, scheduling from a start date gives you the maximum amount of flexibility. When you move a project, you can decide whether you want Project to also move dates on actual work performed.There are earned value costing and other standards.The Actual Start date will not change when others do get modified.If this blog had a sub-title it would be “Task updates never get to Project Professional – even when they (eventually) say 100% Success”.

Worst part is that I have to do it for all the subsequent tasks.Whenever I change duration / predecessor in one task, Project 2012 does not reflect the same into the subsequent tasks automatically.This does not happen in MS Project; you shift the Status Date and "nothing" happens (you can see activities with 0% in the left side - where the actuals are supposed to be; these activities do not move automatically) Why dont the activities move or update when you shift the Status Date as it happens when you shift the Data Date in P3 (F9)?As a consultant you come across a lot of different projects/companies/people.After entering some project steps for the three sub-projects, I might decide the 2nd sub-project could start earlier or later and I try to change it's start date.I can type the new date into the field, and I can select from the calendar drop down, but THE NEWLY SELECTED DATE IS NOT SAVED and the field reverts to the previously saved date.I have to redo ALL the related tasks manually, i.e.
