1. When you update the % complete for a task, does the duration change?
The duration will always change based on the completion of the task.
Only when you set an actual start date.
2. What are two fast ways to update the % complete field?
Insert the % complete column and type a value or double-click the task and enter the % complete.
Insert the % complete column and type a value or click the task tab and click a preset percentage (i.e. 0%, 25%, 50%, 75%, or 100%).
Go to the resource sheet view and type a % complete for each resource or press the up and down arrow keys on the % complete field.
3. When updating the status for a task, do you modify the baseline fields?
Only if you are changing the actual start date.
Never. The baseline fields are for tracking progress against an original plan, so you should never modify them.
If you are updating task progress, you must update the baseline fields to match the new dates.
