Ms project tasks not updating
A Gantt chart is a bar chart that shows the tasks of a project, when each must take place and how long each will take.
As the project progresses, bars are shaded to show which tasks have been completed.
I have a production schedule for works on a customers site.
Our engineers work to my schedule and report back progress on a daily basis.
The tasks are set as Fixed Duration, not effort driven.
The only way to change the start date seems to be manually set the date.
I use Microsoft Project Professional 2013, but the functionality is the same in older versions. w=1320 1320w" sizes="(max-width: 660px) 100vw, 660px" data-recalc-dims="1" / Result of first example of % complete field in MS Project 2013 " data-medium-file="https://i1com/ fit=660,24" class="alignnone wp-image-882 size-large" src="https://i2com/theprojectcornerblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/after-progress-on-percent-complete-1-1024x38.png? resize=660,24" alt="After progress on Percent complete in microsoft project" srcset="https://i1com/ And to close this post, be sure to check me out on MPUG.
If the finish date of a predecessor task is extended then the start date of successor tasks will move forward if the dependancy relationship is Finish to Start, or Start to Start.
Exceptions would be if you have constraints applied to the successor tasks.
You could look at the Constraint dates table or for the constraint icons in the indicators column.
You should not need to manually type dates in the Start or Finish fields for any tasks in the task entry table.This post will help clear up some of the confusion, I hope. ——————————————— The Physical % Complete field shows an entered percent complete value that can be used as an alternative for calculating budgeted cost of work performed (BCWP). Nothing going on really, but somehow we will have progress on it :). Or just set the summary task to 100% if you are all done with the tasks. resize=768,146 768w" sizes="(max-width: 660px) 100vw, 660px" data-recalc-dims="1" / A summary task with 100% complete status in MS Project 2013 " data-medium-file="https://i0com/ fit=660,125" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-906" src="https://i2com/theprojectcornerblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/summarytask-100-percent-complete.png? resize=660,125" alt="summarytask 100 percent complete" srcset="https://i0com/ If you are curious about the first post, which is about Baselines, click the link.
