Is Project Status related with Condition?

Wanted to check with you why project shows condition as "In trouble" even after it is completed? Md Rahman Workfront System Administrator, Enterprise PMO Freedom Mortgage 3 Executive Campus, Suite 315 2370 Marlton Pike Cherry Hill, NJ 08002 Cell -917 412 3038 E: md.rahman@freedommortgage.com

Hi Md, "In Trouble" is Workfront's system generated assessment of the projected progress of the Project relative to its planned progress, and is intended to give (early) warning to Project Managers (et al) that things are starting to slip. The Project's Status (Complete, in your example) is separate, and typically driven by the Project's underlying Tasks: namely, once they are complete, so is the Project. Your screenshot, then, illustrates to me that the Project is Complete, but that when it did finish, it was In Trouble. Regards, Doug Doug Den Hoed - AtAppStore Got Skills?

With that said, we rarely find that field useful (even a brand new project starts "In Trouble"). So we don't use it. We set it to Manual and change the Condition to On Target and measure our project health via other methods. Here is the info on the value and why they're set that way though.
