Report the status of your tasks

As you work on your tasks, you may find it helpful to report status along with the amount of time you’ve spent on the task. For example, you might want to let the project manager know what percent of the task is complete or give your best guess about how much work is left.

In this version of Project Web App, you can report task status separately from your timesheet hours (actual work), or, if your site administrator has enabled the appropriate setting, you can use a single view to report your task status as well as your actual work.

  1. Do one of the following:

    • To enter your task status separately from your timesheet, on the Quick Launch, under My Work, click Tasks.

    • If your organization captures time and task status using the same view, on the Quick Launch, under My Work, click Timesheet.

      Note:  The site administrator sets up whether your organization captures time and task status using a single view or separate views.

  2. Enter the progress you’ve made on your tasks.

  3. To include a comment when you submit your task status, on the Tasks tab of the Ribbon, in the Show/Hide group, select the Comment on Submit check box.

  4. Choose how to submit your task status updates:

    • Submit all tasks    On the Tasks tab, in the Submit group, click the arrow beneath Send Status, and then click All Tasks to submit all task status updates for approval.

    • Submit selected tasks    If your organization enables you to submit only selected task status updates for approval, click the check box to the left of each task status update you want to submit, and then, on the Tasks tab, in the Submit group, click the arrow beneath Send Status, and then click Selected Tasks.

  5. If you chose to include a comment, type the comment in the box that appears, and then click OK to submit your updates.
