Last updated on MARCH 13, 2019

Applies to:

Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management - Version and later
Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management Cloud Service - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.



When using the "All projects use their own Data Date" option when scheduling, the project Data Date is not upheld.


Expect project Data Date to remain intact.


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1.   Manually Scheduling:
    1.   Create a project in P6 Web with 1 activity.
    2.   Schedule the project.
    3.   Go to EPS view and add a column for Data Date.
    4.   Change the Data Date to a date in the future. Save.
    5.   Go to Activities view. Notice how Data Date is the date that has been set in EPS view.
    6.   Schedule the project with option, "All projects use their own Data Date".
    7.   Data Date has reverted back to original Data Date.
  2.   Using Project Scheduled Services:
    1.   Create a project in P6 Web with 1 activity.
    2.   Create a "scheduling" Project Scheduled Service for the project and set the "change data date" to "use project's current data date"
    3.   Schedule the project by running the Project Scheduled Service manually.
    4.   Browse to Activities page
    5.   Select Actions, Run, Scheduler...
    6.   Select "Apply selected data date to all opened projects" and set a new data date then schedule the project
    7.   Browse to EPS page
    8.   Add the Data Date column to the table and save changes to the view
    9.   Adjust the data date for the project to a new date and save changes
    10.   Browse to Project Scheduled Services page
    11.   Run the project scheduled service manually
    12.   Browse to EPS page
    13.   Note the Data reverted to the date selected on step 6 instead of using the data date defined for the project
