Entering a task’s completion percentage
Click OK .
Project records the completion percentage for the tasks that were scheduled to start
before January 14. It displays that progress by drawing progress bars in the Gantt
bars for those tasks.
Check marks appear in the Indicators
column for tasks that have been completed.
Progress bars indicate the portion
of each task that has been completed.
In the chart portion of the Gantt Chart view, the progress bar shows how much of
each task has been completed. Because tasks 2, 3, and 4 have been completed, a
check mark appears in the Indicators column for those tasks, and the progress bars
extend through the full length of those tasks’ Gantt bars. Task 5 is only partially
completed, however.
Entering a task’s completion percentage
After work begins on a task, you can quickly record its progress as a percentage. When you
enter a completion percentage greater than 0, Project sets the task’s actual start date to
match its scheduled start date. Project then calculates the actual duration, the remaining
duration, actual costs, and other values based on the percentage you enter. For example,
if you specify that a four-day task is 25 percent complete, Project calculates that it has had
one day of actual duration and three days of remaining duration.
Here are some ways of entering completion percentages:
Use the 0%, 25%, 50%, 75%, and 100% Complete buttons in the Schedule group of
the Task tab.
Add the percent complete column (labeled % Complete in the interface) to a table in
a task view, and enter the value you want.
