Projected completion dates vs Planned


Level 4

Is there a way as a sys admin I can change the system to show the projected completion date at the top of a project instead of planned? We really want to track the project and tasks based of projected instead of planned after a project gets started.

Hi Bettina,

I'm a fan of Projected Dates too (for companies that are wired that way) so I was encouraged to read your comment.

Although I don't know of any way to modify the top portion of a Project window (Layout Templates pertain to the "tabs-and-lower" part), if your Planned Dates are not of use to you (noting that you could use Baselines to capture them at a particular point in time), what you could do is periodically set the Planned Dates to their Projected Dates, a bit like the concept I described in As Soon As Impossible.
