My team and I are looking for a way to better quickly know status on Task Checklists. Either something viewable on the Charts or a report. Is there a way to do this currently?

 

Explanation of how we use Planner (feel free to critique)

Each Plan will have several Buckets

Each bucket will have several Tasks

And to complete each Task there is a checklist within to ensure everything is completed

 

Use Example:

Plan: Windows 7 EOL (End Of Life)

Buckets: Each Location with Windows 7 computers

Tasks: Each Department with Windows 7 computer

- Task Checklist: Inventory Number of all Win 7 Computers needing upgrade to Win10

 

We'd like to be able to know what computers have been completed on the Checklist for each Task to get an overall status on progress so we can apply pressure as needed to get this completed before January.  I hope this makes sense, and please feel free to critique if we are using this improperly. Ultimately we'd like to move to MS Project but just don't have the time to learn and train this summer.

Thanks!

The best I can see is that there is no solution. Best to just find and switch to a real project management solution.

 

Feel free to chime in but I'm going to move on.
