Task progress with % completeness in Microsoft Project for the Web

Hi,

today I will show you how can you put, and see Task progress using % Completeness in Microsoft Project for the Web!

As always I will first create a simple Project:

as you can see I have Tasks, Resources, and Dependencies. If I look at the Timeline View I will get:

Now let’s say that my Phase 1 is done, and I need to mark all Tasks as 100% completed:

and I will get:

As you can see, % complete for the Phase 1 is calculated as well (it is 10%). If I mark second and third Tasks as 100% completed, I will get:

Phase 1 is 99% completed, because even all Tasks are marked as 100% completed, it is not done, because Milestone is 1% (yes, it is 1% even it has 0 days duration). I will mark it as completed and I will get:

Now, let’s look at the Timeline View:

If I click on the Project name I will get:

Here I can see % Completeness for the whole Project (since it is not possible to see so called “Task 0” in Project for the Web).

Let’s say that Phase 2 is completed as well. I can go and mark each Tasks as 100% completed (and milestone, as well), or I can go to the Summary Task and mark it as 100% completed:

and I will get:

So the shortest way to mark Subtasks as 100% completed is to mark Summary Task as 100% completed.
