How did canceling a project change?

PowerSteering now cancels all descendant tasks associated with a project when that project is changed to the Canceled status. If the project status is changed from Canceled to another status, the parent will update to the new status and the descendants will revert back to their status immediately prior to the cancellation. As part of the upgrade process, PowerSteering will automatically update all descendants of canceled projects to the status Canceled. This includes canceled projects that have been archived. This article describes how canceling a project changed in PowerSteering.
