    calulating of finish date (2000)

    My job has help desk part to it as well as normal project work; I need to show that when I do the tasks from the help desk, the finish dates for my projects will be pushed later. I have simplified the problem as this:
    I have two tasks, Task1 takes 1 day and Task2 takes 2 days. Both start on the same date. I want to see this: Day one 50% on Task1 and 50% on task2, Day two 50% on Task1 and 50% on task2 and day three 100% on task2 so I get finished in three days. It seams whatever I do I keep getting 2 days (with over allocation) or 4 days (with the last two days working only 50%). Any ideas?

    When you are updating the time spent in project, what field are you updating? You could update the task usage view and input the actual hours worked. With your scenario, the duration for Task 1 goes to two days and Task 2 to three days which is what you are attempting to do?

    Is your resource set up with a maximum of 1?

    I'm not sure if this is what you are looking for, but from your description, you need to add lead time to your predecessor. I'm pasting a screen shot of what I mean...hope this works for you!
