Tasks marked as 100% complete are getting reset back to <100 RRS feed

  • Question

  • As part of our project close out process, we instruct our PMs to update all tasks to 100% complete.  We have PWA set up to only allow task updates from timesheets, so to do this the PM will set the remaining work to 0 hours on a task and then set the % complete on the task to 100. They then lock the tasks for updates and publish.  We are noticing that the tasks are sporadically being set back to the %complete they were before the PM updated it.  Does anyone know why this is happening?

  • Hi,

    this will happen if you have a task with Task Type "Fixed Duration". If the work is completed (after setting Remaining Work to 0) earlier than planned, there will still be Remaining Duration > 0. So % Work Complete is 100, but % Complete is not yet 100%. Please ask your PMs to also set Remaining Duration to 0 in these cases. This will shorten die duration if Fixed Duration tasks to their actual duration and task will be completed.

    Does that work?
