Microsoft Project 2010, 2013, 2016 – setting default to auto-scheduling

In earlier versions of Microsoft Project, all tasks were auto-scheduled by default. In Microsoft Project 2010 this changed, so that by default all new tasks are scheduled manually. If you are used to the older versions, you may prefer to set the default to auto-scheduling for all new projects.

To use auto-scheduling for all new projects:

Click the File tab, then from the Backstage view, click Options. The Project Options dialog box will be displayed.

Click Schedule.

From the Scheduling options for this project dropdown, select All New Projects.

From the New tasks created dropdown, select Auto Scheduled.

Click OK.

All new projects will now have tasks auto-scheduled by default.
