Hour 8. Working with Other Task Views > Inserting Tasks in Network Diagram View

Inserting Tasks in Network Diagram View

You can add tasks directly to the project in the Network Diagram view. You must select the insertion position carefully, however, if you want to control the ID number of the new task. Project inserts a task you add in Network Diagram view just after the currently selected task.

To Do: Adding a New Task via the Network Diagram

To add a new task while working in the Network Diagram, do the following:

1.
Select the task you want the new task to follow. This step makes sure the new task node will be placed to the right of the selected task and has an ID number that follows that of the selected task.

2.
Choose Insert, New Task (or press the Insert key) to insert a blank node to the right of the selected task.

The ID number for the new task is one greater than the selected task, and all existing tasks with ID numbers higher than the selected task increase by one, just as they do when you insert a task in the Gantt Chart view. The new task appears directly to the right of the selected task.

3.
Type the name for the new task. Tab to the Duration field and estimate the duration. Do not enter the start or finish date unless you want the task constrained to one of those dates.

4.
The new task will be linked into the task sequence if the Autolink feature (discussed in Hour 6, "Linking Tasks in the Correct Sequence" ) is turned on and if you insert the new task between two tasks that are connected in a Finish-to-Start relationship. Otherwise, you will have to create the links required for the newly inserted task.
