Multi-Year Recurring Tasks

Multi-Year Recurring Tasks

Multi-Year Recurring Tasks

Fairly new to Project 2010. I am establishing a fairly long project. Can't seem to figure out how to set up a multi-year recurring task (one that occurs every two years). I thought it would be similar to setting up a quarterly task, but no luck. Can't really find any information about it on the web. Is it possible?



RE: Multi-Year Recurring Tasks

Well, since the limit is 99 weeks, you can't make it recur every 104 weeks. One solution I tried that works is setting up the meeting to recur annually, then deleting every other year. If you're making a project plan that goes out past 10 years, you're probably wasting your time, so deleting 5 task records is not that bad.

RE: Multi-Year Recurring Tasks

I'm not sure I follow. Are you saying the task occurs once every other year? I'm not sure that is worth the bother of using recurring tasks. Create the summary task and enter the two occurrences as either manually scheduled tasks or with SNLT constraints.
