Using the Update As Scheduled Function


If your project is going completely according to schedule and you want to update the status of the tasks that are in progress, Project provides you with a shortcut. You can tell Project to update all tasks in the project to be as complete as the original plan said they should be up to the current date (or the status date).

Use the Update As Scheduled Function
