Stop and resume task properties does not affect the duration


#1

Hi!

I would like to know how the Resume and Stop properties could be considered on duration.

On MSProject it has been able seen that those dates affect the task’s duration.

start_date: 2022-05-09 09:00:00
end_date: 2022-06-06 18:00:00
duration: 19 days

stop: 2022-05-09 09:00:00
resume: 2022-05-11 09:00:00

Gantt changes the duration and set for 21 days, how could we fix that, is it possible?

Hello,
Unfortunately, Gantt does not support the Stop and Resume properties when calculating duration. Gantt calculates duration with the start and end dates of the tasks, or with the start date and task’s duration property. Note, that the end date has higher priority than duration. Therefore, even if you have a duration, but there is the end date in your data, then the duration will be ignored. So Gantt can’t take Stop and Resume parameters into account.
