Inputting Project Tasks into the Project Scheduler Tutorial
Inputting the Task Description
The 1st project task that will be performed on the project is interior demolition.
You will notice that the Project Scheduler is pre-built with a drop down menu & database of typical scheduling tasks.
You can use the scheduler database or input your own custom task description.
Inputting the Start Day #
Once you’ve input the task description you will input the Day # that the project task will start on.
It’s important to note, that you need to input the Day # and not the date.
The Day # is referencing the day # that is found on the project timeline.
The interior demolition is planned to start on the 1st day of the project schedule, so we are going to input 1 as the start day #.
Once you’ve input the tasks’ start day #, you will then input the task duration in # of days.
Inputting the Task Duration
We are anticipating the interior demolition should be completed in 2 days, so we ill input the number 2 under the duration of days column.
You will notice once you input the start day # and duration the project scheduler creates a Gantt Chart that illustrates the task start and finish dates over the project timeline.
