Ms project updating task status updates resource status
In Chapter 8, “Track progress: Basic techniques,” you learned how to save a baseline for a plan.
To keep an accurate baseline for later comparison, you have several options: In the chart portion of this view, the tasks as they are currently scheduled appear as blue bars (if they are not critical tasks) or red bars (if they are critical tasks).
For example, your project is going well and most of your tasks are on track.
Rather than updating each task in your project daily, you update the tasks to their scheduled percent complete weekly, and then modify the percent complete for those tasks that are either behind or ahead of schedule.
When you save (or set) a baseline, Project takes a “snapshot” of the existing values and saves it in the plan for future comparison.
If you’ve previously saved a baseline, you might need to update it before recording actual work.
Building, verifying, and communicating a sound plan might take much or even most of your time as a project manager.
