Hi, I've been testing web2Project for a week and I have some difficulties regarding tasks dependencies: - when I make a change on start/end dates on a tasks, it seems that the change is not taken into account for the tasks that are dependent (start/end dates are not recalculated) - when I create a new task and set the start and end dates, and set a dependency with another date, the start and end date are not recalculated with regard to the dependency (I have to remove then add again the dependency) Am I doing something wrong ? Thanks in advance ! livevil\nP.S. I'm using the latest 3.2 version

there are some peculiarities maybe you are encountering these, maybe others: 1) start dates are not adjusted backward. 2) in earlier versions, there was a bug where either the parent or the child needed to be saved after changes to trigger the calculation. I think in 3.2pre, we had it alright except 1). Can you give a simple example?\nJust having a parent and two children with dependencies, their dates before a change and after a change? Then we can try and debug. and one more: do you change them in task edit or in projectdesigner? I think in 3.2, I also found some problems in projectdesigner and reported them in a bug report in mantis\nbug 1604, 1585, 1582. These fixes will be in current git version but maybe not in official release (use master on git) Klaus

Hi, All changes have been done with task edit. I tried several things, reported below. I put the page name between brackets () and buttons clicked between square brackets []. ----------\n(Project List) -> [New Project] -> Name = \"Test\", Company = \"My_company\", start_date = \"08/sept/2014\" --> [Save] (View Project) \"Test\" --> [New Task] : Name = \"Task_0\", start_date = \"08/sept/2014 10am\", duration: \"1 day\" --> [Finish Date] --> [Save] (View Project) \"Test\" --> [New Task] : Name = \"Task_1\", start_date = \"08/sept/2014 10am\", duration: \"5 hours\" --> [Finish Date] --> [Save] (View Project) \"Test\" --> [New Task] : Name = \"Task_2\", dependencies = \"Task_1\", start_date = \"08/sept/2014 10am\", duration: \"5 hours\" --> [Finish Date] --> [Save] *Result*: - Task_0: 8/sept/2014 10am - 09/sept 10am - 1 day - Task_1: 10/sept/2014 10am - 10/sept 3pm - 5 hours - Task_2: 10/sept/2014 10am - 10/sept 3pm - 5 hours =>dependency not taken into account ---------- (View Project) \"Test\" --> [New Task] : Name = \"Task_3\", start_date = \"08/sept/2014 10am\", duration: \"5 hours\" --> [Finish Date] --> [Save] (View Project) \"Test\" --> [Task Edit] \"Task_3\" : dependencies = \"Task_1\" -> [Save] *Result*: - Task_3: 10/sept/2014 5pm - 10/sept/2014 10pm - 5 hours => start should be after Task_1 (10am + 5 = 3pm) and end should not exceed 7pm (working hours) ---------- (View Project) \"Test\" --> [Task Edit] \"Task_3\" : (no change performed) start is at 5pm and end is now shown at 9pm (View Project) \"Test\" --> [Task Edit] \"Task_2\" : duration 7h (display 10/sept/2014 10am to 5pm) --> [Finish Date] --> [Save] *Result*: - Task_2: 10/sept/2014 5pm - 11/sept 2pm => Start date is updated but should be after Task_1 i.e. 10/sept/2014 3pm (there is a 2-hours time gape between the tasks, I don't understand why), but end date is correct with regard to this start date (5pm + 7hours = 2pm, working hours 9am - 7pm)\n- Task_3: 10/sept/2014 5pm - 10/sept 10pm => No change ---------- **(With Parent/Child)** (View Task) \"Task_0\" --> [New Task] : Name = \"Task_0.a\", parent = \"Task_0\", start_date = \"10/sept/2014 10am\", duration: \"2 hours\" --> [Finish Date] --> [Save] (View Task) \"Task_0\" --> [New Task] : Name = \"Task_0.b\", parent = \"Task_0\", dependencies = \"Task_0.a\", start_date = \"10/sept/2014 10am\", duration: \"2 hours\" --> [Finish Date] --> [Save] *Result* (View Project): - Task_0: 08/sept/2014 10am - 09/sept/2014 10am\n- Task_0.a 10/sept/2014 10am - 10/sept/2014 12pm\n- Task_0.b: 10/sept/2014 2pm - 10/sept/2014 4pm => dependency taken into account, but start should be after Task_0.a, i.e. 12pm, still a 2-hours time gap ---------- (View Project) \"Test\" --> [Task Edit] \"Task_0.a\" : start = \"10/sept/2014 11am\", duration 5h --> [Finish Date] --> [Save] *Result*: - Task_0: 08/sept/2014 10am - 09/sept/2014 10am\n- Task_0.a 10/sept/2014 11am - 10/sept/2014 4pm\n- Task_0.b: 10/sept/2014 4pm - 10/sept/2014 6pm => OK, no time gap ---------- (View Project) \"Test\" --> [Task Edit] \"Task_0.a\" : start = \"10/sept/2014 11am\", duration 7h --> [Finish Date] --> [Save] *Result*: - Task_0: 08/sept/2014 10am - 09/sept/2014 10am\n- Task_0.a 10/sept/2014 11am - 10/sept/2014 6pm\n- Task_0.b: 10/sept/2014 6pm - 10/sept/2014 8pm => No time gap, but working hours not taken into account, should be 11/sept/2014 10am I hope this helps. livevil
