Chapter 3. Working with Project Options > Setting the Schedule Options

Setting the Schedule Options

The Schedule tab contains options that control many aspects of how Project operates its scheduling engine on your projects. It sets many defaults and specifies several actions, such as how Project handles in-progress tasks and how it deals with constraints when scheduling.

Understanding Scheduling Options

This option sets whether Project displays a dialog notifying you of inconsistencies it finds in your project. Leaving this option checked will let Project give you valuable advice about how it schedules.

By default, Resource Assignment Units are shown as a percentage. This option allows you to show this number as a decimal.

This option lets you change the default start time for new tasks so that new tasks start on the current date. Otherwise, the default start time is the start of the project itself.

This option lets you define the units in which Duration fields are entered. Days is the default value.

Work fields are entered in hours by default, but this option lets you change this to minutes, weeks, months, or years.

This option lets you define the Default Task Type for new tasks.
