The Original Duration is changed when scheduling an in-progress activity with an Expected Finish.


The Original Duration should not change when scheduling an in-progress activity.


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps (using an example Data Date of 15-Jan-15 and Activity A1000):

  1. Assign an Expected Finish of 20-Jan-15.
  2. Schedule with a DD of 15-Jan-15.
  3. The Original Duration changes to 56.00h to honor the Expected Finish, pulling Planned Start to 15-Jan-15.
  4. Mark Activity A1000 as Started on 15-Dec-14.
  5. Schedule again; the Original Duration stays at 56.00h.
