Ms project summary task not updating

One note is for the project in question, a previous editor had saved it with a filter on the resource names, so that when I opened it that filter was still in place.After removing the filter the /- to expand/collapse tasks did not work. w=1320 1320w" sizes="(max-width: 660px) 100vw, 660px" data-recalc-dims="1" / Wow! Clearly the percent (%) complete field doesn’t show everything that is actually happening here. Look at the example below and see if you can figure out what happened with the percent (%) complete field: Start of second example with percent (%) work complete in MS Project 2013 " data-medium-file="https://i0com/ fit=660,43&ssl=1" class="alignnone size-large wp-image-891" src="https://i1com/theprojectcornerblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/before-progress-on-percent-work-complete-4.png? resize=660,43" alt="Before progress on percent work complete 4" width="660" height="43" srcset="https://i0com/ Let’s put the physical % complete field in all earlier examples and have a look at what progress is shown there: Start of example with Physical percent (%) complete in MS Project 2013 " data-medium-file="https://i1com/ fit=660,91&ssl=1" class="alignnone size-large wp-image-898" src="https://i1com/theprojectcornerblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/before-progress-on-physical-percent-complete-1.png? resize=660,91" alt="Before progress on Physical percent complete 1" width="660" height="91" srcset="https://i1com/ However, in terms of duration, the project was only 50 percent complete because you had only spent 75 of the required 150 minutes. w=1058&ssl=1 1058w" sizes="(max-width: 660px) 100vw, 660px" data-recalc-dims="1" / The progress fields act just the same with the Project Server and Online versions.

My cursor is a 'white cross' when I need it to be an 'arrow'.

I'm assuming this is something minor that I'm missing. Thanks As with the previous post, closing and re-opening fixed the problem.

That is because I am looking at a field that just shows me progress in duration. Let’s have a look at the same example, but now with the field percent (%) work complete: First example with percent (%) work complete in MS Project 2013 " data-medium-file="https://i0com/ fit=660,36&ssl=1" class="alignnone size-large wp-image-889" src="https://i2com/theprojectcornerblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/after-progress-on-percent-work-complete-3.png? resize=660,36" alt="After progress on percent work complete 3" width="660" height="36" srcset="https://i0com/ More information about Earned Value Management (EVM) can be found on my post about Earned Value Management. However, it would be wise to get a company policy in place for progress reports.

I did 75% of the work already, and progress just shows 50% complete. Depending on how you get paid for the work—how the value is earned (by the stone or by the hour)—you may choose the percent complete value or the physical percent complete value to properly reflect this in the earned value analysis.” Please be sure to know that all other EV fields in Project are still automatically calculated based on values in your schedule. So don’t worry, you will not need to learn a new skill set.

I saved the project without the filter, then closed/reopened and all worked normally. In my case I had created filters on tasks only (not resources) and then was unable to expand or collapse subtasks with the mouse on the task icon.

Even though I did not have my defined filters "on".

That might be an interesting thing to figure out, and maybe your reports would look a whole lot better and more accurate.

Hello readers, In this post I will take an extensive look at a set of fields that report progress in the schedule. And if they didn’t, act on that: Manage by exception!
