The Agile feature is only made available in the subscription Project Online Desktop Client that comes with Project Online Professional or Premium subscription – not the 2016 or 2019 products.
If you want to know more about this feature look at this article from Tim https://www.mpug.com/articles/newly-released-agile-capabilities-in-ms-project/
Hi, By any chance is Resource Initials fields for the resource PM blank? If yes, please set PM as the initials
Hi Carl, since you want the lowest of the four fields use this formula IIf(Number1=1,1,IIf(Number2=2,2,IIf(Number3=3,3,IIf(Number4=4,4))))

Hi Carl, It was nice speaking to you. It helped to have clarity on your requirement. Please use this formula for Number5 instead – IIf(Number4=4,4,IIf(Number3=3,3,IIf(Number2=2,2,IIf(Number1=1,1)))). Please note Number4 refers to the fourth field, and so on, and so change the field names accordingly. I tested this formula with different combination so that the highest value between Number1 to Number4 is selected in Number5 field – Here is a screenshot for that https://photos.app.goo.gl/AmTUP4uSvEjzgz6p8
It is quite hard to predict why does this happen and that too only for one task with late start in 2017. Can you include a screenshot of the schedule with these columns – indicator, name, deadline, constraint type, constraint date?04/03/2019 at 12:15 am in reply to: Best place / way to buy a copy of MS Project for personal use while learning? #415250
Tina – Templates should allow you to change dates and that’s its purpose. Can you elaborate what is the trouble in changing date?
The cause of negative slack is the early start/finish is after late start/finish. Please check the following conditions
1. Have you set a deadline to any task, and does that task miss the deadline?
2. Have you set a MSO, MFO, SNLT, FNLT constraint on any task?03/19/2019 at 10:16 pm in reply to: Updating fields for multiple project using MS Project and Project Online #415140
Yes, Project Online connector (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/projectonline/) doesn’t support updating fields yet. You can use update enterprise fields as well as custom fields with workflow but one project at a time – https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/client-developer/project/bulk-update-custom-fields-and-create-project-sites-from-workflow-in-project. So, you will still retain the Flow that checks out all projects, publishes and checks-in back. You write a workflow that gets triggered when check-in / publish event happens, and updates the enterprise fields or custom fields.

I have come across scenarios where the user presses the insert key by mistake when scrolling across the dates on the right side of the Task usage view. When insert key is pressed, Project considers that the work needs to moved to the next working day and sets 0 hours. In this image, on Monday 18th March, and Tuesday 19th March i pressed insert key and so the work got moved to the next working day. To fix this issue, you can either reset the duration to 0 days and change it back, or select those days on the right side of the Task usage viewand press Delete button.
The dots appear on task 2 and 3 because the task was split or delayed to start later. To fix this issue, change the duration of this task to 0 and change it back to the duration you wanted.03/01/2019 at 10:18 pm in reply to: Not updating Remaining work in Timesheet after Actuals entered #415023
Hi Beth, Is single entry mode in Timesheet settings and Defaults in PWA settings ON? Only if this is ON, Task progress entered in Timesheet page will be synchronized against the tasks in Task page and vice versa.

It needs to be on as when the remaining work of 24 hours (this is the Resource status) is moved to future date, the remaining duration (this is task status) will also be updated to 3 days. If this is off, updating remaining duration will be 2 days and remaining work will be 24 hours.
I suppose the option “Updating Task status updates resource status” (File > Options > Schedule > Calulation options for …) is turned off. Turn on this option, will update the resource status when task status is updated and reverse is also true.02/07/2019 at 10:43 pm in reply to: Inactivating Task causing Critical Path to Malfunciton #414858
Adding to what Larry said, do you have any constraints on the first task or is it manually scheduled. If you could screenshot of the schedule, it can help to troubleshoot better. Meanwhile, you may want to look at my article https://www.mpug.com/articles/the-case-of-the-broken-task-in-microsoft-project/ on why this could happen
