Question:
What should the % Complete Calculation Method be set to in PPM if using the Microsoft Project (MSP) Interface as the scheduler tool? 
Answer:
The required % Calculation Method is 'Manual' for projects using MSP as the scheduler tool.

IMPORTANT: Note that it is not supported to change the % Complete Calculation Method once a project is started, so it's recommended to first change the % Complete Calculation Method for the project in a non production environment and verify there is no impact to data and also save a copy of the mpp locally as a backup.
