Task Reflection reflects tasks and details from other Gantt charts
Often, MS- Project users want to display in their own Gantt Chart a task from another Gantt Chart (The reflected task), and to be updated about certain data and changes concerning the reflected task. Linking between Gantt Charts in MS-Project software is limited in possibilities (does not reflect data such as: Work fields, Split task finish date etc.), and when using large Gantt charts and several links, work and performance is slowed. The Task Reflection add-on performs a full reflection without linking between Gantt Charts, that saves time when opening or saving Gantt Charts and enables working with large Gantt charts and hundreds of links.
