      My question is what is the best way to add tasks in Project schedule in initial discovery phase. As the project is progressing i have to keep updating the schedule by adding new tasks and allocating resources to some. I have to include the meetings that we had with clients in it. Do i add new tasks
      1. by the date it occurred or planned
      2. i add the tasks related to each department and group the tasks by department name.

      Uzma, good question but no one answer. It’s more about organization than timeline, although timeline is typically a consideration. Best practice might say to organize your tasks by phase or deliverable, or a combination of both. In your case you mention departments, which I’ve also seen. Use summary tasks for organization, with levels to be able to drill down to key work packages. It’s all about what you are creating. Within a summary task it is typical to list the tasks by date…but no hard rules. Hope that helps…
