Raise the priority of the task you want to accelerate. That's what it's for.

When you Edit the Page, you have to make sure the type in the webpart properties is set to 'webpart' not to 'list'... just learnt that the hard way :-)

These are very broad subjects in Project Management, but as a short introduction it goes like this: Gantt charts are a tool for scheduling. They show how activities relate to each other over time. You list all the activities as horizontal bars where the size and position of the bar within the chart show when each activity starts and ends, how long it lasts, ...

A Gantt chart displays the activities in your project and when the planned dates for execution of these. The network diagram helps you calculcate the first possible end-date of the project, including early and late start|finish dates.

I outdent the summary task and add a new summary task. Then I indent the lower task and this works.

The format of &[Date] is set by your date format selection in Options. Choose a date format there that has no time. Unfortunately, this does not cover the case where you want the time to show on the task table but want it omitted from the legend.

I'm not a MS Project expert by any stretch of the imagination; however, if I were to approach this scenario in the tool, I would first filter the schedule to show only the critical path as MS Project calculates it. This assumes you constructed the schedule properly with the dates being identified using the network logic you created. Then, I would add the ...

The default progress bar in the Gantt chart depicts (duration) % Complete, which is Actual Duration / Duration * 100. Percent Work Complete, on the other hand, is Actual Work / Work * 100 (this is different from what you’ve said.) Normally these two values are closely linked by the default schedule setting: Updating Task status updates resource status. (...

It is normally considered best practice to include explicitly-defined contract dates in the project schedule network, with due impact on schedule slack and critical path calculations. If you want to display contract start/finish dates without affecting the slack calculations, then the simplest approach is to include the contract dates NOT as separate ...

MS Project allows time increments as low as a minute. By default the task duration unit is in days but that can be changed. The documentation shows how to change it. On the File tab, click Options. In the Project Options dialogue box, click Schedule. Under Scheduling options for this project, in the Duration is entered in list, select a duration unit.

Planned Cost: After planning the project and before updating any progress, save your planned dates, units, and costs using the Set Baseline dialog on the Project ribbon. The Baseline Cost for the assignment will reflect the original unit cost of $70. Forecast Cost: After setting the baseline, revise the material's standard unit rate on the resource sheet (...
