Activity IDs are not getting imported as expected from Microsoft Project (MSP) to P6. Activity IDs are numbered incorrectly and do not follow auto-numbering default settings.
Activity IDs should import as expected from MSP to P6 as set in auto-numbering default settings.
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
- Login to P6
- Import MSP project XML file.
- Highlight the template in use, such as "MSP Mapping", click Modify --> go to Activity tab--> change "Import Microsoft Project's Task ID field" to "User Defined text field" - "MSP Activity ID", click OK.
- The Activities ID are following P6 default settings, while the activities ID are imported as A1010-1
- It does not follow the sequence as A1060, even if set the Auto-numbering Defaults settings to starting from 1060, still got the same result and the auto-numbering sequence went back to the default as 1010.
