If you need to modify information for several Tasks in MS PROJECT
- First, you'll establish a simple Project
- If you want to edit all of them (or some of them), you must first choose the Tasks and then click information (on the RHS of your screen)
- and you'll receive
- you'll go over all of the tabs, but not all of the fields; instead, you'll focus on the most important.
Name: If you type something in this field (for example, Development), it will be applied to all selected Tasks.
Duration: If you enter a value in this field, the duration of all selected tasks will be the same.
Percent complete: If you enter a number, all tasks will have the same percentage.
Schedule Mode: Manually or Auto Schedule Mode will be selected for all Selected Tasks.
Deadline: For all Selected Tasks, you can choose the same Deadline date.
Constraint Type: For all Selected Tasks, you can select a constraint type (for example: SNET, ASAP, FNET, ALAP, etc.) and enter the relevant date.
Task type: You can select Fixed Units, Fixed Work, or Fixed Duration, as well as whether or not Tasks are Effort or Non-Effort driven (Fixed Work type is always effort driven)
As you can see, predecessors are not allowed for Multiple Tasks, which makes sense!
