Question:
In OWB, when you change the task status from "Not started" to "Started", the % Complete remains at 0%. This is not logical. Is there a way to control the % Complete value when the task status becomes "Started"?



 
Environment:
Any PPM release
Answer:
You can map the Started status to a value you wish by:
1. Open OWB
2. Go to Main menu in OWB -> Project Properties -> Advanced 
3. Set the '% Complete at Start' value to a figure you wish, e.g.  1%.
