Default MSP level all

Hi All,

new to forum so thanks in advance for any help offered

I have created a plan with all tasks, predecessors, resources etc.

When I 'level all' it works out who should be allocated to what. However, I have some tasks I'd like to be done earlier than the task MSP is using for the first task. The reason for doing the task I want first is down to preference and there are no particular dependencies.



I have tried using priority, thinking MSP would allocate the higher priority tasks before the lower, but this does not work either. I can 'fudge' it by using predecessors but this is not something I particularly want to do

Thanks for any help offered

You need to use a pretty wide difference in priority values in order to see effect in leveling.

I don't understand your statement:

I have some tasks I'd like to be done earlier than the task MSP is using for the first task.

Leveling will not move tasks earlier than their current schedule, only later.
