I currently use MS Project 2000 on a project with 4 people and it is something that I can not do and yet that seems like pretty basic needs.I like to know if anyone knows a way to set (or variabilize) the duration of a task to create a schedule in MS Project?I have to plan the cleaning of 3 corridors of different lengths By opening a schedule "source", I wish I could learn the variable "length" to create a different. Someone there a way to create a "non-breaking spot" in MS Project. Today I am forced to create 2 tasks with the same name
I begin GTD one year ago with paper, then excel, then i moved all to toodledo. I stabilised 3 months ago whith about 1000 tasks and 80 folders.
Finaly the best for me is to manage task in 3 different way : single task, reccurent task, other
- I'm now have 5 folders with only my recurrent tasks : 320
- I moved my somedays, notes, checklists and other not actionable lists in my toodledo notebook as simple text lists.
- I'm using pen and paper for the single tasks (Autofocus Mark Forster backlog / close list)
As a long time user, trainer and consultant on MS Project, my experience is that a "task" in MS Project is a "project" in TD (or any task manager). E.g., "Write Report" is a single task in MS Project, but is a parent task in TD which has subtasks like "Gather info", "Write outline", "Write First Draft", etc.
In general, a todo list like TD should be one level down from a CPM schedule like MS Project. Of course, YMMV.
