I have a bunch of tasks set up to get done by a dozen teams. The teams are in as resources that have varying sizes. 200%, 400%, 600% whatever..

When I report the tasks, some have been started and are x% complete others have not been started. I put in the priorities of the tasks, great so far.

Now I want to go to the Project and Update the project with the option of "Reschedule uncompleted work to start after today" Great, Project does that. Then when I click Level all, some of the tasks get scheduled to begin back at the beginning of the project in January. Any idea how to stop that?

    Never ever auto level. – David Espina Jun 15 '17 at 20:01

Be sure to clear all leveling before implementing the Update Project dialog. Tasks whose start dates are already beyond your "reschedule uncompleted work to start after:" date - including those delayed by leveling - will be ignored in the dialog. When you re-run the leveler, the existing leveling delays will be removed, and there will be no logical constraints to keep the tasks in the future.
