I'm using CA PPM 15.3 with Open Workbench. Recently I noticed that when I'm in OWB and update the task % complete to 100, and save it back to PPM. In PPM, the task shows 100% complete, but the task status did not get updated. Any one has the same experience?
Hi I-hsin Wang,
If ETC has more than 0, then the task status does not show change to 'Completed'.
Then please check if ETC has more than 0 for the task.
In OWB and in PPM - there is the Status attribute - if the user sets this to be 'Completed' and there is no ETC, then the % Complete is updated to be 100%. It doesn't work the other way around - ie set to be 100% complete and no ETC, doesn't automatically set the Status to be Completed.
For one PPM client using OWB, I wrote a process to check tasks to see if the % Complete = 100% and ETC = 0, then set the status to be Completed.
Other PPM clients, instruct their PM's to set the Status manually as one could argue that 100% doesn't equate to 'Complete'.
