1.  I have set a start date and have created an entire schedule, I now need to move the start date and keep the same sequences, but not all things are linked together - how do i do this?
2.  Multiple times this may occur throughtout the project. If my project is delayed by weather, inspectors, suppliers, etc and I need to move it to tomorrow and have everything after move in the same sequence - when things may not be linked together - how do I do that?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

1. Link them. Sorry, but you either fix start dates for non-linked items as appropriate, or you link them.

2. Put in a delay buffer as a dependency. Insert them as needed between what has happened and what will happen subsequently.

You may also have to split a task. “Paint the walls of the house,” may be split into “Paint the front of the house,” followed by “Weather delay,” followed by, “Pain the north side of the house, ” followed by, “Swarm of locusts,” followed by, “Pain the back of the house.”

Project also permits the addition of subtasks to “Paint the house.” Use insert and the indent button to update a unit task like, “Pain the house,” to include subtasks as described above. When you have finished painting the house, roll-up the task by hitting the minus sign in front.
