Summary0001360: Dynamic task - duration calculations
DescriptionDynamic tasks aren't correctly updating dates or durations.

Project dynamic task
  Dynamic task group 1
    Task 11
    Task 12
      Task 13 (dependent on T12 - not a child)
  Dynamic task group 2
    Task 21
    Task 22

If using cascaded dynamic tasks, each with sub tasks then:-
1. "Project dynamic task" durations count Dynamic task durations and next level of task durations ie result is 2 x what it should be
2. "Dynamic task group 1" doesn't include "Task 13" duration in its count

Correct. A dynamic task should only include its children (and grandchildren, etc), so this is behaving exactly as designed. This is also how it operates in other task scheduling/tracking systems such as MS Project.

There are some minor issues with how this is calculated.. mostly works but the occasional oddity if the task tree is/isn't built in a certain order.

I have yet to 100% determine what that right order is.

Should have added a screen capture - % complete for dynamic task shows as 127% for child tasks at 30% and 5% respectively.
