The Time chart tells you whether your projects are ahead or behind time. It uses the data entered on Project tasks to determine the results. Here's how it works:

  • If you have a task that was due to be complete by today and it's not, then it's behind.
  • If you have a task that was due to be complete in the future and it's already complete, then it's ahead.
  • If you have a task that was due to be 50% complete by today and it's 45 % complete, then it's behind. However if it's 55% complete then it's ahead.
  • So the system looks at every task and works out the % that was due to be complete by today, vs. the actual % complete and determines if it's ahead or behind.

To update the results, change the percent complete by moving the task progress slider on the List or Board Views or update the percent complete column on the Plan View.
