  • The question was not answered. What is the difference between "Remaining Tasks and Remaining Actual Tasks"

    I still don't know the difference because I thought all tasks are actual tasks??? What is a task that is not actual for example?

  • Hi Ron,

    I cannot explain Microsoft's naming of these terms, however the way they use them that remaining tasks gives a burndown chart, and remaining actual tasks gives a burndown of tasks that are 100% complete.  It is best to look at the chart to see the difference.
