Chapter 4. Entering and Working with Tas... > Working with Advanced Task Settings

Working with Advanced Task Settings

To maintain the proper scheduling of tasks, it's very important for you to understand and be able to work with the settings found on the Advanced tab of the Task Information dialog box. While learning how to work with these advanced options, it's a good idea to experiment with them using a test project so that you can understand how these settings affect the scheduling of your project.

Setting and Viewing Advanced Task Settings

Select the Advanced tab.

A Deadline date is a target you can set for a task. Enter a date from the drop-down if you want to set a Deadline date for your task.

If a constraint is needed for this task, you can enter the type and date here. If you need to reset a task back to As Soon As Possible, change the type.

Enter the Task Type for the task in the drop-down.

Select whether the task is effort-driven by using this check box.

Specify the Calendar for this task and use the Scheduling Ignores Resource Calendars option to give the Task Calendar precedence over resource working times.

Select the Earned Value Method for the task. Generally, it is better to leave this as the default.
