Description:

When expanding an activity on the WBS view to display the tasks below it, the Schedule timescale will display columns for the duration of the tasks. The summary tasks will only display to the end of the timescale.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Create a project
  2. Create a phase, activity and 25 tasks under the activity
  3. Set some of the task finish dates out to 2017
  4. Go to the WBS page, and use the default settings
  5. Expand the Phase
  6. Expand the Activity

Expected Result: The tasks below the activity to display in a few seconds and that the Gantt bars stop at the last timescale column


Actual Result: The tasks below display in 23 seconds or more, and the Gantt bars for the tasks go out in the future causing the Gantt view to be distorted

Solution:

Status:
This is defect CLRT-55781 and is fixed in CA PPM 12.1.0

Workaround:
None
