Remarks You can control whether edits to total percent complete are distributed through the status date or to the end of the task's actual duration so far. When you enter percent complete, Project might adjust actual and remaining work around the current status date.Hello readers, In this post I will take an extensive look at a set of fields that report progress in the schedule.You can enter percent complete, or you can have Project calculate it for you based on actual duration. Data Type Percentage Percent (%) Complete (task field) Entry Type Calculated or entered How Calculated When a task is first created, the percent complete is zero percent.As soon as you enter actual duration, remaining duration, or actual work (which affects actual duration), Project calculates percent complete as follows: Percent Complete = (Actual Duration / Duration) * 100 If the % Complete field is set to a value greater than zero, the Actual Start field is set to the scheduled start date if you have not yet entered an actual start date.

To see the total percent complete for the task, review the % Complete field in the timephased portion of the Task Usage view or other task sheet view.The simplest version of monitoring progress in a schedule is the percent (%) complete field.
