Insert new task at preferred date not possible - Bug or Feature
The problem is simple: I have 4 tasks, each spread across 1 week, with a linear dependency between them. They are all part of one WBS, which is part of a higher WBS level. I want to insert another task which will be executed in the 3rd week.
No matter what I do, I cannot make it start at the beginning of the 3rd week and finish at the end of the 3rd week WITHOUT any dependecy from any other task from the WBS. I can create it and set it up correctly at the end of the project lines but once I bring it into the WBS I am interested in, it is automatically set to start at the beginning of week 1.
Did anyone else experience this?
PS: the above is just an example, my actual plan is much larger
Edit: I may have found the culprit but his does not solve the issue. The affected WBS had a dependency on a milestone which was set at the beginning of the 1st week. This makes ALL "free floating" tasks within the WBS to start in the 1st week UNLESS you add a lag from the said milestone. Once I removed the milestone dependency I could set the new task to whatever date but if I recreate the dependency the task goes back to square 1. Tbh, I see this as a massive bug and a true "wth" moment
