Status field in MS PROJECT 2013

Hi,

This morning I woke up and I decided that I wanted to be a PMP, so I am writing this post, which makes me officialy a PM expert. Please let me know if you have any questions. I am available for work @ 2.000€/day. This rate is just for me to show up and do nothnig, but you can tell everybody that you have PM on your project. If you want me to produce some documents we will have to discuss a rate on a minute basis. My moto is – make clients happy – I will make you happy, and you will never have a feeling that it was my fault that project failed.

To prove my expertise, here is my frist blog post. This is a genuine blog post that I wrote myself, based on my experinece as a projecet manager.

Have a nice day.

Status field in MS PROJECT 2013

Hi,

today I’ll show you how Status field works in MS PROJECT 2013.

As usual I am going to Create some Tasks:

I will add the Status field in the View:

As you can see Task 1 is On Schedule, because today is Mon 03.03.2014. Other Tasks are in Future Tasks Status. I’m going to change Status date from NA to Sunday, 09.03.2014:

and I’ll get:

As you can see Task 1, Task 2, and Task 3 are late according to Status date. No I’ll make Task 1, and Task 2 completed:

and I’ll get:

Now, Task 1, and Task 2 are Completed, Task 3 is Late, and Task 4 is Future Task.

This is powerful field. Use it whenever you want. You can sort on it, filter on it etc.

But, be aware that in some situations it will not be change according to changing status Date. It is minor Bug. If it does NOT refresh repeat this steps:

1. Hide the Status field Column

2. Show it again

It will work!

Here is the example. I changed the Status field from NA to 01.04.2014, and I get:

It’s wrong. After Hide / Show the same Column I’ll get:

Now, everything is OK!

Regards
