Join Bonnie Biafore for an in-depth discussion in this video Looking for schedule progress problems, part of Microsoft Project 2010 Essential Training.
- Once a project is underway…you need to watch the schedule to make sure…it's progressing according to plan.…Project offers several tools…that help you spot schedule problems…and correct them before they get out of hand.…The tracking gantt is a great view for doing this.…To apply that view, I'm gonna go to the Task tab,…click the bottom half of the Gantt Chart button…and then choose Tracking Gantt.…Now, on the right side in the timescale…the gray bars represent the baseline values.…
On the other hand, the blue and red bars…are your current schedule.…Just by looking at the timescale you can see…which tasks are slipping…or scheduled later than your baseline…but you can also apply a filter…to start honing in on problems.…Go to the View tab and in the Filter drop down box…choose More Filters.…Scroll down until you see Should Start By,…click that and then click Apply.…You have to give it a date…so let's say it's November 14, 2015.…
You wanna see the tasks that should've started by today.…So, you type your date in the box and click OK.…
