asked Oct 9, 2019 in Question / help by José Cruz


for instance, I start a taks.. then for some reason it is suspended.. and resumed after 1 week... is this possible?

I have tried to insert two lines like this:

[task-quality-card-201909] lasts 2 days and starts 2019-10-03

[task-quality-card-201909] lasts 2 days and starts 2019-10-08

The generated chart just ignores the first one.

You'll have to split that into two tasks:

project starts the 2019-10-03
[task-quality-card-201909] lasts 2 days and starts 2019-10-03
[task-quality-card-201909_] lasts 2 days and starts 7 days after [task-quality-card-201909]'s end

As an alternative you can close the project for a week:

2019-10-05 to 2019-10-11 is closed

but this will suspend all tasks.
