As Part of BigPicture 7, it has been introduced a functionality which assists you in management of Work Breakdown Structure in your Program. Drag and drop of a particular task while on Scope or Gantt modules, can trigger a change of where this task is placed in the WBS. If your Program configuration has Synchronization of Work Breakdown Structure configured, manual change of task position may be against these Synchronization rules.
In that case, our app reverts you such a manual change and presents a validation message to you.

The value it brings
Prior to BigPicture 7, manual changes could have been saved even if they were conflicting with the rules of automated build WBS. This behaviour was misleading because an app reverted the change nevertheless once full-sync was performed.
This feature gives an immediate feedback which prevents situation where changes in Work Breakdown Structure are executed without user's knowledge.
