Work with Task Priorities

A task’s priority helps Microsoft Project with automatic resource levelling (a process of fixing conflicts when a resource is over-allocated). In Microsoft Project, it is possible to assign priority values between 0 and 1000 (where 0 is the lowest priority). By default, tasks are assigned the value 500.

Working with Priorities

The priorities associated with a class are handled through the Priority property exposed by the Tsk class.

  • Priority: a task’s priority (an integer between 1 and 1000).
