When I split a task, where can I find the dates related to the cut ?
- Start date;
- End and start of the first cut;
- Start of the second cut;
- End of the second part of the task.
If the company has accomplished work (actual work) the progress should be tracked. If you then need to stop the work and reschedule - I would not create a split using the split task command. Record the Actual Work (or Actual duration) - then use the "Reschedule uncompleted work" command in Update Project. If you do that, you will see the date the work halted in the "Stop" field and the date the work is scheduled to begin again in the "Resume" field.
The difference between Duration and Actual duration is that "actuals" are used in tracking. The process should be as follows:
Create the schedule:
Once the schedule is agreed upon - save a baseline.
Once work starts, you need to start tracking the progress on the project. By entering % complete - Project will calculate actual duration and will also calculate remaining duration. (Take a look at the tracking table). If there is more time needed - adjust the remaining duration and the % complete will be recalculated. Or - better yet - enter actual duration and remaining to calculate % complete from the beginning.
When you use the "Reschedule" command - remaining duration (and work) is rescheduled to resume on the new start date. It also splits the task.
