Deliverable Start (task field)

Data Type    Date

Entry Type    Calculated

Description    For each task that has a deliverable associated with it, the Deliverable Start field displays the scheduled start date of that deliverable. For tasks that have no associated deliverable, this field displays a value of NA.

How Calculated    The Deliverable Start field displays the text that appears in the Start field for the associated deliverable. This date cannot be changed manually on the task sheet. To change this date, click Manage Deliverables on the Collaborate menu, and then make your changes in the Deliverables pane.

Note: Some deliverables use the Title (Name), Start, and Finish values of the tasks that produce them. Making changes to the values in the Deliverables pane does not automatically make the same changes to the associated task.

Best Uses    Add the Deliverable Start field to a task sheet so that you can tell at a glance when an associated deliverable is scheduled to begin.

Remarks    You can only associate one deliverable with any one task, either as a deliverable produced by that task or as a deliverable produced by another task or project upon which that task is dependent.

To make project deliverables visible on a task sheet, include at least one of the following fields:

  • Deliverable Type indicates whether the current task has an associated deliverable, and whether that deliverable is produced by the current task or produced by a separate project or task upon which the current task is dependent.

  • Deliverable Name displays the name or title of the associated deliverable.

  • Deliverable Start displays the scheduled start date of the associated deliverable.

  • Deliverable Finish displays the scheduled finish date of the associated deliverable.

  • Deliverable GUID displays the unique identification code of the associated deliverable.
