Hour 5. Turning the Task List into a Schedule—The Rest of the Story

In Hour 4, "Turning the Task List into a Schedule," we began our coverage of the instructions you can give Project to impose terms and conditions on how it calculates the schedule for you. You saw how to define the times when tasks can be scheduled with calendars and how to enter estimates of task duration for both regular working hours and for continuous or elapsed time. You also saw how to split an individual task into multiple work sessions.

Although the calendar and duration estimates are essential, you didn't see much change in the schedule in Hour 4. This hour, however, you will see dramatic changes. In this hour, we will look at specifying the order in which tasks should be scheduled, which is called linking tasks, and defining fixed date requirements, which are called constraints.
