I'm trying to link 2 tasks in Project and having issues with autoschedule. I set the first task to manual and put in the dates. However, when I set the second task to autoschedule and link it to the first task, the date is almost a month later than the end of the first task.
I cannot figure out why this is - only 1 predecessor, constraint type is 'as soon as possible', no 'actual' start or finish dates, and both tasks are at 0% progress. Also, the date for the second task won't go earlier than what autoschedule sets it to, no matter what I do to the constraint type or even if I unlink it and manually type in the start date I want (the line will go back to 'start no earlier than' and then the later date).
Any idea what the cause of this could be?
