Users Cannot Change the Start and Finish Dates by Dragging and Dropping the Activity Bar in the Gantt View. (Doc ID 2587954.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 01, 2019

Applies to:

Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management Cloud Service - Version 19.6 to 19.9 [Release 19.6 to 19.9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.



In the Activities View, when attempting to move the bar to a new date (in the Gantt View), the bar keeps snapping back to the original date.


None of the Activities have an Actual Start Date.

Moving the bar to the left, it snaps back to original date.
Moving the bar to the right, it almost snaps all the way back to the original date.


A user should be able to move the bars by simply dragging and dropping.  The Start and Finish dates should be modified accordingly.
This was a feature that worked in previous versions and is a very valuable feature of the software.


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1.  Login to P6 Web.
2.  Go to Portfolios, Capacity Planning.
3.  Attempt to drag an activity bar, in the Gantt View, to change the start and finish dates.
4.  Observe the bar does not remain on the newly selected start and finish dates.  Rather, it sets back to the original start and finish dates.
