Dates not populating in project plan

edited 12/09/19 in Archived 2017 Posts

I've been working on a project plan and suddenly my dates are no longer populating within the tasks. I've enabled dependencies on each of the columns and it was working fine. Now if I enter a dependency the date range becomes blank and I'm not able to enter a date. I've tried creating an entirely new section and just "re-building' but it appears to be on the entire sheet. 

Has anyone else experienced this and how did you get around it? I've been using Smartsheet for several years now and this is the first time I've experienced this problem.

    Hi jsmallory,

    Your screenshot doesn't show the row numbers in order to validate this, but one possible explanation is that if the any of the predecessor rows have blank dates then the dependent row's date will turn blank when you add the predecessor.

    I recommend checking each predecessor to make sure that everything that should have a date, does.
