Ms project complete not updating
Summary tasks are subtotals and subtitles to help organize work.They should never have resources assigned nor should they be tracked.Additionally, I'm not clear on how the percent complete can exceed today's date.If I update the percent complete on all subtasks completed to date, the summary task shows complete through 9/9/08 (91%) which is obviously not accurate since I have a little over 2 months left of tasking.The summary %complete is the ratio of the sum of the durations of the completed tasks divided by the sum of all the durations.
If you need to track how much work each resource has performed on a task during a specific time period (for example, daily), you can enter the timephased information for actual work for each assigned resource.
Indicating the percentage of a task that is complete helps you track actual progress.
By specifying a percentage of completion between 0 (for a task that has not started) and 100 (for a task that is finished), you can compare planned progress to actual progress.
If you know the amount of work that has been performed on a task, you can enter the actual work for the task.
If you know how much work each resource has performed on a task, you can enter the actual work for each assigned resource.
