Task Dates/times show as outside Scheduled Hours


Level 1
Dear all, We are seeing that the planned dates on our tasks are being set for times that fall outside of our set 9am-5pm schedule. And it varies from task to task. We are wondering about the cause of this and if there is a way to bulk edit these tasks to show the correct times as we set 9am-5pm. Any experience or input on this issue will be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Wendy Qin, Ph.D, PMP Director, Project Management E: wqin@sarepta.com p: 617-274-5145 c: 617-460-2553 215 First Street, Cambridge, MA 02142

Hi Wendy, For certain task constraint types (e.g. ASAP), Workfront has a hierarchy of schedules (i.e. single Primary Assignee's schedule, then Project's schedule, then Default schedule), so my suspicion is that either the Primary Assignee's Schedule or the Project's Schedule is different than the Default, intercepting, and leading Workfront to plan your work outside of the Default Scheduled hours. If so, what you see might in fact be "better" than the Default. If not, by enforcing the Default and recalculating timeline, you might be able to bring things back in line without any bulk updates, as such. That said, for certain other task constraints (e.g. Must Finish On), Workfront also defers to humans when it comes to saying "finish at this date and time"...even those humans who might not realize that their data entry of such a desired date is in fact "locking it in" as an MFO. If that is the case, you could either switch back to ASAP and let nature take its course, or create a large task report and manually update the task constraints and planned start / planned end dates as need be.
