Set and update task progress

Sharing out task progress doesn't have to involve complicated calculations. In Planner, it's simple. Tasks can be:

Not started    

In progress     In Progress

Completed     Completed

Sometimes you may need more than simple task progress:

Done with a task?

To quickly mark one of your tasks as Completed, point to it and select the check mark.

Using a touch screen? If you're not using a mouse, you won't see the check box to mark something as completed. Instead, check out a few other ways to update progress.

Tip: Completed tasks are hidden at the bottom of the task list. Scroll down and choose Show completed.
