Description:

In OWB when a project is set to Manual % Complete Calculation Method you should be able to edit the summary task status in a view. With 12.1.1 you cannot edit the value in a view, but you can edit the value on the Advanced tab.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Create a project (With %Complete Calculation Method as Manual)
  2. Create a summary task - S1
  3. Create a task - T1
  4. Launch the project to OWB
  5. Create a view with Task Name, % Complete, and Status
  6. Note the % complete is 0.00% for both and the Status is Not Started
  7. Manually change the status on T1 to Complete
  8. Note the summary task S1 still has a status of Started
  9. Try to change the summary task S1 to Completed in the view

Expected Result: To be able to change the summary task status in the view
Actual Result: The Status field is not editable in the view for any summary task

Open the summary task and edit the status on the Advanced tab.
