Ms project start date not updating

We use baselines to keep track of officially approved schedules and the delta between these values and the current schedule.Baseline start dates can be made visible using Tracking Gantt views, I had Bonnie do a guest post where she shows you just how to show more than one baseline on the Gantt Chart.If yes, proceed with the steps below, if not, you will need to re-schedule this task.Now that your team member has said they’re on track for completion, let’s look at how we update this in this demo schedule: We’re tasked to update this schedule, and looking at the Finish Dates of the task, as of today (10/23/15), Task 1 and 2 should be 100 % Complete and Task 3 as told by the team member is “On Track for completion” To update Task 3, you don’t ever have to ask them for a Percent Complete anymore, rather we’ll let Microsoft Project’s scheduling engine do the calculation for us.No matter how simple the project is, these basis start dates will always be there: the project start date and the start date of any tasks, summaries or milestones.The start date of your project can be found in the project information tab on the ribbon: Also, you can prompt Microsoft Project to start with the Project information screen when you open it.If you have ever had the pleasure of working with Microsoft Project you will likely be quite happy with it until you start changing the RESOURCE UNITS percentages (in the TASK INFORMATION pane).

The deal with this start date is that every newly entered task will start at that date.

You can repeat Steps 2 and 3 for the tasks that need to be updated this way.

No more pie in the sky numbers for percent complete, and forcing your team members to give you a random number, the tool will do all that for you. Interested in how EPMA can help you with your project schedules?
