Learn how new tasks can be added directly inside Synchro, and the process by which this is accomplished.
- [Instructor] To manually add a task to your schedule, you first need to find the row in the schedule where that task needs to be added. For our project, come down to Row 17 and then click on the 17 to highlight the row for the structural piles. We want to add three child tasks underneath the structural piles. Go up here to Task on the ribbon. And then find Create over on the far left hand side. Then select on the word directly above Create.
From here we can see that we have three different options for tasks that we can create. One option is to create a task above the structural pile. So we highlight it. Another is below the row that we highlighted. And the third, and the one that we wanted to choose, is As child. Which will create an indented row directly below structural piles. So select As child. And now we can see that we have a new task underneath the structural piles. Now at this point, since it's highlighted in blue, we can rename this task.
Let's call the task Piles One. Then hit Enter on the keyboard. Now we need to add two more tasks, which ultimately will be a Piles Two, and a Piles Three. To accomplish that, we could either go through the exact same steps. Or we can highlight on the Piles One. Come up to here where we now have As child. Click on As child. And then select on Below. And now we can see that it's created a new task below the Piles One.
Do that one more time. Come up here to Below. Select on Below. Now we have et another new task. In order to rename the two new tasks, so that they're Piles two, and Piles Three, there's a shortcut that we can take. If we scroll over until we can see the outside edge of our Piles One column is at, we can click in the area of Piles One. And you'll see a little box in the lower right hand side. Highlight over that little box.
Click, hold your mouse button down. And then drag the box down. Then, let go of your mouse button. By doing that, it'll automatically rename each of those new tasks to be Piles Two, and Piles Three. By using these steps, you can populate your schedule with as many new tasks as is required.
Brian Myers focuses on the major features of Synchro for project management, animation, and presentation. Learn how to import scheduling and model data, schedule tasks and visualize them with Gantt charts, track progress, and even create animations based on tasks. Brian also shows how to export your work to paper, PDF, and image and video files. Start watching to find out how Synchro unifies the process of BIM and scheduling for more insight and control at every stage of construction.
