Can we make changes to a comleted Work Plan

Hello,

Version 8.0

we would like to make changes to some completed Work Plans. The root task is not editable for these projects. Is there any way to achieve the same.

Thanks

Re: Can we make changes to a comleted Work Plan

you cannot make change to the root task first of all because that represents the project's name.

but you can set it to active/in planning etc by clicking on task number 0

also you can make changes on a completed work plan by changing its status from "completed" to "In progress" and then again set it to "completed"

Thanks, but I do not think this is possible in 8.0 anymore, I tried editing the task 0 status, but it does not allow me to.

Thanks

hello,

I would assume that project is still Active/open, We wont be able to edit/activate the root task of completed task from roottask itself, To do so we need to activate any of the child task and then workplan will be activated by default and would allow you to make the changes.

Hope this will help you.

Thank you.

Thanks Jyotirr,

But the issue is that the work plan status is complete and I would like to edit the same to change some efforts/schedule. I am unable to edit any task here, all are read only.

Thanks again.

Thanks for your resoonse.

The Work Plan status is Completed, the Project Status is also completed, we also tried to reopen the project request( thereby changing the project status to active), but even then the work plan cannot be edited.

Ok, Project should NOT be in Closed Status. Go to workplan.

Go to a leaf level task in Workplan(It will NOT be in bold) and then edit it.... Once you go in, you can see status drop down enabled.

Change the status to something like 'ready' and save the task.
