Percentage complete without "work" box filled in.

    The Work(h) column for a task is automatically computed when you allocate resources to a task. You do not have to manually enter data in this column.

    You can create tasks with Fixed Duration and from the Interactive Gantt assign yourself to the tasks from the bulk action (Resource > Assign Resource). This will calculate the Work(h) column automatically and your %complete will show correctly.

    As a company this resource alignment is not a feature we wish to take advantage of. We would like a progress report just based on the percentage of work complete according to its respective duration. From a project management standpoint I would just like to oversee the amount complete with the celoxis report tools but I am unable to get any comprehensive reports without allocating resources to tasks. I just wish to input progress personally and use celoxis tools to oversee the many projects I am in charge of. Is there a new formula I have to input?

     

    - Thank you for your time

    I understand your requirement, but, the way Celoxis computes the %complete;  it is necessary that you input the Work per task. We are going to improve this logic in our upcoming Release. But currently, there is no way you can achieve this without entering work.

    When is the new release coming out? Am I able to pay the company now to configure this format for me currently? This is the first problem I have encountered with Celoxis and is vital to my requirements for PM software that it is user friendly and can show me progress status without resource allocation

    If I simply assign a "non-licensed" user to every task for every project 100% for the sake of the % calculations will the percentage complete still be accurate or will the system automatically balance his time throughout all projects

    We still haven't finalized over the release date as yet. You will receive updates when the release date is decided. Unfortunately, as my engineering team is completely busy with the upcoming release, your request will not be possible now.

     

    Answering your question, you can assign a non-licensed user to the task for the % Complete to be updated correctly. Let me know if you still have any queries.
