Schedule Duration Issues

I've been working in a CPM schedule. The original showed a 141 day duration, starting 12/12 and ending 05/04. I'm updating some of the relationships as I had to rearrange the work pattern a bit, now my schedule shows 144 days, starting 12/12 and ending 6/29. Does anyone have an answer as to how I gained only 3 days duration yet two full months were tacked onto my end date? I have a feeling it's the way Smartsheet defines duration... but I would thing duration is linked to the days between the start and end of a project.


Insight would be appreciated.  


  • Cancel that, Ghost-Rider. Solution acheived. I've obviously been staring at this too long.

    can you advise your solution?

    Did smart sheet ever reflect changes to correponding activities jus as Microsoft project would do?

    It wasn't an issue of Smartsheet malfunctioning. It's working just as intended. It was an issue of myself comparing two schedules end dates that I had failed to update the starting date on... like, duh. So obviously my end date was going to be two months out when I didn't update the start date to be the actual start date.... It was a facepalm moment.Undecided
