The quickest way to track the progress of an individual task is by recording its completion percentage. For example, it's easier to say that a mark is half done than to say that 25 of the 50 scheduled work hours have been completed. Tracking task progress allows Project to recalculate your schedule. Let's practice updating task progress by its completion percentage.

  1. Select the Write lessons task.

    Let's tell Project the task is 100% complete.

  2. Select Tools The Update Tasks dialog box appears, as shown in Figure 9-6. When you enter a completion percentage for a task, Project calculates the task's actual and remaining duration using this number.


    Note: Entering a completion percentage for summary tasks updates the progress of its subtasks.

  3. Click in the % Complete box. Type 100 and click OK.

    The task is updated to full completion, as shown in Figure 9-7.
