Identifying tasks that have slipped
Click Slipping Tasks , and then click Apply .
Project filters the task list to show only uncompleted tasks that, as they are now
scheduled, have slipped from their baseline schedule.
Note the gaps in the task ID numbers. Tasks 2 through 26, for example, do not
appear with the filter applied because they are already complete.
At this point in the schedule, the scheduled start date of the uncompleted tasks has
slipped quite a bit. Most of these tasks’ scheduled Gantt bars are formatted red to
indicate that they are critical, meaning that any delay in completing these tasks will
delay the project’s finish date.
On the View tab, in the Data group, click the arrow next to Filter (it now contains
[Slipping tasks] ) and then click Clear Filter .
Project removes the filter. As always, displaying or removing a filter has no effect on
the original data.
The Tracking Gantt view graphically illustrates the difference between scheduled,
actual, and baseline project performance. To see this information in a table format,
you will display the Variance table in the Task Sheet view.
On the View tab, in the Task Views group, click Other Views and then click Task Sheet .
Project displays the Task Sheet view. Next, you’ll switch to the Variance table.
On the View tab, in the Data group, click Tables and then click Variance .
TIP You also can right-click the Select All button in the upper-left corner of the active
table to switch to a different table.
The Variance table appears in the Task Sheet view.
In this table, you can view the scheduled, baseline, and variance values per task.
