6.13. Milestone Tasks Overlooked by Schedule Audit

Applies to: @RISK 6.x/7.x, Professional and Industrial Editions

Although some of my milestone tasks were lacking predecessor or successor tasks, the Schedule Audit did not report them. The Schedule Audit also missed positive lags (fixed durations) between milestones.

Milestones are tasks with a duration of zero. By default, the Schedule Audit does not report issues with them, but you can change this. In the Schedule Audit window, which @RISK displays after performing the audit, click the Options button. Then, near the bottom of the Schedule Audit Options dialog, remove the tick mark from the box labeled "Filter Out Tasks with Duration <=".

Note: @RISK 6.2.0 and earlier failed to report issues with milestones even if that box was empty. This bug was fixed in @RISK 6.2.1; if you have an earlier version you will want to upgrade your copy of @RISK.
