I am new to MS Project and already asked a question here that revealed my incomplete knowledge of the scheduling process. After reading some articles and watching videos like this one, I think of myself as being a few steps closer to get the grasp of the scheduling in MS Project.
However, I am still not sure how to go about the following example: A supplier sends an email confirming my inquiry and includes a date of delivery.
How do I incorporate the delivery date into the schedule, but make the task automatically planned?
I know this is a little unspecific, but I feel like an example would help me a lot.
Edit: The following works, I am not sure if this is OK though.
- Setting the task as manually planned (duration stays estimated)
- Link the start date (duration stays estimated, end date is adjusted)
- Enter the scheduled end date (duration changes value and from estimated to fixed)
- Turn the task into automatically planned (duration stays fixed)
