Troubleshooting

Scheduling Short Assignments in Fixed-Duration Tasks

How can I schedule a short assignment in a fixed-duration task without extending the duration of the task?

When you add a short assignment (one that could be finished before the other assigned resources finish) to a fixed-units or fixed-work task, Project schedules all the work at the beginning of the task, and the assignment finishes before the task finishes. But when you add a short assignment to a fixed-duration task, Project spreads out the work evenly over the duration of the assignment and reduces the units to reflect the reduced workload during each period.
