Scheduling completed tasks in the future RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm using Baseline work, Actual work & work to calculate the remaining duration to schedule my plan.

    However, I have various tasks that are being scheduled in the future, please see below. please note today's date is 21/11/19.


    My thoughts are to set the Status date in the past but unsure what else this would effect and when I should set it to if this is indeed the right avenue to go down.

    What is exactly your issue here? What is your method in MS Project to set the task progress?


    Hope this helps,

  • Hi Guillamore, 

    For background, I use Ceptah Bridge to pull my data from Jira. This populates the following;

    Baseline Work = Estimated time to complete task

    Actual Work= Time taken on task so far

    Work = Remaining Estimated time + Time taken on task so far

    Project then produces Duration & Remaining Duration

    I believed Remaining duration is using my work column but putting it into elapsed time 

    Therefore if there is 0 Remaining Duration, then the plan would not need to plan anything in the future.

    Am I making some incorrect assumptions here?

    Regards,

    Christine.
