Join Jason Osder for an in-depth discussion in this video Split tasks, part of OmniPlan 3 Essential Training.
- Split tasks in OmniPlan are exactly…like what they sound like.…It's the ability to take one task and break it into parts.…Generally, this is not done due to…a project management challenge,…but because something else comes up.…Your resource gets sick that day,…or some other factor inside or outside the project…just means that a task has to break for a while…then you'll come back to it later.…That's what a split task is.…We're going to split drafting,…and in our story here, perhaps the writer…took a break or went on strike or got sick.…
We just select the task and then…right here up on the toolbar…we have "Split Selected Item".…We click that button and we have a little little dialogue.…First it's saying how do we want to split the task,…that is, we have just under three days,…it was probably meant to be three days…when it was originally done to do this task.…Do we want to split that down the middle,…or we can set it to split say…two days on one side and then we'll be almost a whole day…on the other side.…So it's where will this break.…
