Ms project percent complete not updating

16-Sep-2019 10:27

The assigned resources have reported that they are done. The Actual Duration field changes to 3 days, and the Actual Finish field changes to the scheduled finish date.

Remarks By default, changes to a task's percent complete value affect the actual work value.

You add the % Complete field to the timephased portion of the Task Usage view and see that for this task, 10 percent appears in cells for each of the 5 days, for a total of 50 percent.

You had estimated a duration of two days for the "Conduct client meetings" task.

I created a project with example tasks to show the changes when progress is made.

I use Microsoft Project Professional 2013, but the functionality is the same in older versions.

Similarly, changes to the actual work value affect the task's percent complete value.

By contrast, percent work complete shows the amount of work completed on the task so far.

Percent (%) Complete (task-timephased field) Entry Type Calculated or entered How Calculated When a task is first created, the timephased percent complete is zero.

As soon as you enter actual duration, remaining duration, or actual work (which affects actual duration), Project calculates percent complete as follows: Percent Complete = (Actual Duration / Duration) * 100 This total percent complete is then divided and distributed across the duration completed so far.

Remarks You can control whether edits to total percent complete are distributed through the status date or to the end of the task's actual duration so far. When you enter percent complete, Project might adjust actual and remaining work around the current status date.

Hello readers, In this post I will take an extensive look at a set of fields that report progress in the schedule.

The simplest version of monitoring progress in a schedule is the percent (%) complete field.
