Settings at the activity level

Last but certainly not least, the activity level settings are paramount for schedule calculations. Most people know the activity settings and forget to look into all other settings when dates do not seem to calculate as expected.

Activities are the major component of a schedule, and there are several aspects to each activity that must be considered. Activity components can be categorized as Mandatory or Optional, and several of them together represent the chain that affects dates in P6.
