Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Hi All,

Im making a revised schedule and this is one of my problem. I want to change the Original duration without changing automatically the Activity % complete. these activities already started and there are already progress on it.
I'll appreciate any help you give me. Thanks.

Hi John,


It all depends on the kind of progress % complete type you are using, if it is duration % then it would be affected but if it is physical % complete then you can go ahead to input the correct original duration to reflect the obtainable duration. if you are using units %, it depends on the quantity of the job delivered for you to get the progress %.

I will advice you to always use physical % complete type so as to give accurate progress on the job.

Hi Jone;


Basically you are revising this duration due to inaccurate of the original planned duration, it means the started activity could not progress as you planned . Progress % and remaining durtion to be determined by you.

Hi John

If you cannot just extend the end date of the uncompleted section then you may have to take off the progress - extend the durations and then add back the progress.

Best regards
