MS Project: How to make a task appear under multiple summary tasks?
Posted on 2011-09-05
I have some tasks (some of which are summaries themselves) that are in support of multiple summary tasks. For example, the last few tasks in each project workstream are specifically in support of preparing for going live with a process, and ideally I would have a structure with several "process x workstream" summary tasks and a "get ready for live" summary task that would pull together all the tasks within the "process x workstream" summary takss that are related to getting ready for live, so I can display all the getting-ready-for-live tasks in one fell swoop. I'm using 2010 and 2007 (having to save down because my client is still on 2007).
I could make a copy of each task with a start-to-start dependency on the "master" task from the process workstream but then I run the risk of not inheriting changes like duration or resource assignments, so I'd much rather have a way of rolling up the "get ready for live" tasks that automatically knows about the specific tasks under the process workstreams.
