This one has been bothering quite a few folks for a while now and is something we get regular calls about. In Primavera P6, R8.2 when you use the Classic Schedule Layout and create a Level Of Effort (LOE) activity, the bar doesn’t show up in the Gantt chart.
The Classic Schedule Layout is the default layout when you first install Primavera P6 R8.2, so you’re kind of stuck with this one from the outset. At first I thought it was to do with the bar not being selected in the Bars dialog. But upon checking this, I found it was selected, so it should be showing up. More digging required. By checking some of the other Layouts where the bar did show up, I discovered the answer.
Open the Bars dialog and change the Timescale cell from User Dates to Remaining Bar. Click OK and save this change to the layout. You should be good to go for LOE bars from here on out.
