Understanding and Resolving Scheduling Conflict: Activity Starts after Entered Date
From time to time we receive in support following question:
Why does Merlin show some text and dates in red?
These are rows with scheduling conflicts.
Just hover with the mouse over a red colored text. Merlin will show the current scheduling conflict in a tool tip.
To see all scheduling conflicts, just call 'Window > Show warnings' and switch to the 'Scheduling' tab.
The conflict Activity starts after entered date in the selected row comes from the fact that an exact start date and time point of 7:00 AM had been entered. This time point lies outside the working time, so Merlin pushes the group (and its children activities) to the next possible time point (that is at 8:00 AM).
This is the warning you see here.
Resolving this conflict
Do you really want to schedule it at 7:00 AM?
You need to fix the start date.
7:00 AM is not correct?
You can remove it or adjust to 8:00 AM.
