Project Settings & Working Days "disappeared"! Help!

Hi there,


Created a new, fairly large project sheet.  Set up working days, holidays etc.  All of a sudden (post SmartSheets update..don't know if a coincidence) none of these settings are applying.  E.g. I can select Sat or Sun and those dates populate even though they are non-working days.  Also, on same rows the durations are no longer auto-calculating!


Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.  I had been working away for time building out further tasks (nearly 300) and then realized this was occuring.  A mess!


Only other action I tool was I had copied in rows from another sheet - but that sheet was originally a copy off of the master project so same settings should have applied.


Thank you.

    Hi Mel—check to see if dependencies are enabled on this sheet by right-clicking a column header and selecting Edit Project Settings.


    If you don't see the "Edit Project Settings" option, you may be looking at a report instead.


    I'd also double-check to make sure you don't have two sheets with the same name.


    It's important to note that you can still start tasks on non-working days, but the end date will be pushed to the nearest available working day.


    Also, any row copied or moved from another sheet will inherit the settings of the destination sheet (not the sheet they came from).


    If the above doesn't work, contact Support@Smartsheet.com for further troubleshooting.
