Adding time to tasks

You can also solve scheduling conflicts by increasing the duration of a task. Again, in the best of all worlds, you have this luxury. In reality, you may not. But if you can increase the duration of a task, you may find that once-scarce resources are now available to complete the task — given the task's new timing.

As you know, you can change the duration from several different views, such as the Task Usage view or the Gantt Chart view. You can also use the Task Information dialog box to complete this task, as shown in Figure 9-3. To open the Task Information dialog box, double-click the task and use the Duration box to change the duration.
