Project progress using Project Accelerator and Microsoft Project for the Web


today I will show you how can you see Project Progress using Project Accelerator.

First of all, I will create a brand new Project using Microsoft Project for the Web:


Now I will make Task 1 100% completed, for Task 2 I will say that 8 hours are completed, and For Task 3 I will say that 16 hour are completed:


Notice this:

  • Total Effort is: 8+16+24+32+40 hours = 120 hours
  • Total Effort completed = 8+8+16 = 32 hours
  • Total Duration is : 1+2+3+4+5 = 15 days
  • % Completeness = 32/120 = 0,27 = 27%

Now I will switch to Project accelerator:


On the main Project screen I can see total Effort, Completed effort and % Completeness for the whole Project. Now I will go further:


and I will get:


Her I can see for Schedule:

  • Estimated Start Date
  • Estimated Finished Date,
  • Duration,
  • % Completeness

And for the Effort:

    • Total Effort,
    • Completed Effort,
    • Remaining Effort

To conclude, if you use only Project for the Web, you will not see the overall Project status and Project Health. But, with Project Accelerator, you will. That is the reason why I recommend it so much!

Best regards!
