UPDATE PROJECT DIALOGUE BOX

Brass Contributor

I run a portfolio of 60 small and large projects and submit a weekly status report to my sponsor.  Recently, we started updating projects: Set 0%- 100% complete. Unfortunately, we don't see the "Late" status report of some tasks, as the software assumes everything is on track. Is there another feature we can add to our weekly report to see late or slipping tasks while maintaining the auto-update feature? 

 

Let me know if you have any questions.

 

Thanks.

@Molalenge,

Short answer, no. By using auto update you are telling Project to assume everything is up to date with respect to the current date, or status date if different from the current date.

 

Is there a way to still see late or slipping tasks? Yes, don't use auto update, as those two features are mutually exclusive.

Thanks for your response!

Molalenge,
You're welcome and thanks for the feedback.

John,

I forgot to ask you. Can you disable the auto update feature, or you simply not use the application for future use? Make sense? Thanks. Again.

@Molalenge,
No....that doesn't quite make sense. What you refer to as the "auto update feature" is not auto at all. It must be initiated by the user if appropriate for their scenario, so if it is not appropriate, don't use it.

 

If you are asking for some type of "lock out" for this feature I suggest you submit a request through the Project feedback portal.

Got it. Thanks again!
