Understanding and resolving scheduling conflicts
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 or warning in a tool tip.
To see all scheduling warnings and conflicts, just call 'Window > Show warnings' and switch to the 'Scheduling' tab.
The conflict 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 the 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.
