The tracking process is often the part of the project that is the most confusing for many new users. After you start applying progress to tasks and assignments, your job becomes a bit more complicated. Not only do you need to keep track of the plan for the work coming up, you have to keep track of it in light of what has already been done. The questions for you during this process are: how much work has been done by the resources, how does that compare with how much we thought they should do, and how much do they have left? Before you get to that point, you need to become familiar with how Project allows you to track progress, and you need to decide how you will collect and update status reports from your resources. This chapter looks at using baselines for comparing actual progress to your original plan, updating progress, and then viewing that progress.
