Introduction:

I cannot change the status of the sub project from a program Gantt view.

 

Question: 

When I create some tasks in the project and set as the sub project under the program then I can see the status of tasks on the program Gantt view.

These are the tasks of the sub project but I cannot change the status of the sub project (top tier of tasks).

How can I change the status of the sub project ?

Answer: 

  1. If you set 'Duration' or 'Effort' for % Complete Calculation Method and run 'Update % Complete' job then the status of the sub project will be change.
  2. Also, if the % Complete Calculation is set to 'Manual', you can update the overall project status field or individual task status fields by going into the specific project.  You cannot update the status field from the Program Gantt view.
  • To update the status field of a sub project using 'Manual' % Complete Calculation in a program, change the % Complete for the sub project at it's project level.

    The logic for this is below:

     a) Where Project % Complete = 0%, the Status will display as Not Started in the program's task list.

     b) Where Project % Complete = > 0% but < 100%, the Status will display as Started program's task list.

     c) Where Project % Complete = 100%, the Status will display as Completed program's task list.
