Task Progress and Task Properties -- Incorrect calculation (PWA 2010, MSProj 2010) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    When I click on the task under My Work--> Tasks, and update Remaining Work to 0(zero) to indicate work completed, I get Total Work and Timephased Work as 0(zero). Say originally it is 8h.

    After I complete the Send and Accept process, the Duration in my MPP shows 0.

    Actually it should reflect 100% under complete and maintain the Duration as 8h.

    What is going on wrong here? Any server settings I have to address.

    Thanks.

    Your process for entering progress is totally flawed.  You must FIRST enter progress and then you can adjust Remaining Work as needed.  In your case, when you set the Remaining Work to 0h, this sets the Work to 0h, which in turn sets the Duration to 0d, which makes the task a milestone.  If the work was completed, why didn�??t you just enter 100% in the % Work Complete field, or 8h in the Actual Work field?  If you had done so, the system would have worked correctly.  The software would have maintained 8h of Actual Work and left the original Duration at 1 day (or as you describe, 8h).  So, there are no settings you should change; instead, you need to change your process for entering progress.  Hope this helps.

  • Hi Dale,

    I have got the Start, Finish and the Remaining fields enabled. The other fields for actual work and %complete are disabled.

    Thanks.

    What is your organization�??s default method for tracking progress in Project Server 2010?  And have you locked the Actual Work and % Work Complete fields to prevent editing?  Let us know and we will try to help.
