When a project template has been set up with extensions before creating the project for any clients, you can extend the project by selecting an extension from the drop-down list in the Due dates section of the Project dialog. If your project template did not have extensions before you created the project for a client, you can add them afterward using the Extension dialog.

To open the Extension dialog, right-click the drop-down list under Due dates in the Project dialog and select Add Entry or Edit Entry from the context menu.

Note: Extensions added to a project template do not get added to projects that have already been created. To add an extension to an existing project, right-click and choose Add Entry from the context menu, as described below.

Adding an extension

  1. In the Project dialog, right-click the drop-down list under Due dates.
  2. Select Add Entry from the context menu.
  3. In the Extension dialog, enter a number in the Extension number field.
  4. Enter the extended date or select it from the drop-down calendar in the Due date field.
  5. Click OK.

The extension and extension number now appears in the Extensions column of the Manage Projects screen.

Note: By default, the number in the Extension number field is 1 for the first extension you add. It will increase each time you add an extension to the current project. You can also change the number manually, if necessary.
