By default, the progress bars on the Projects -Tasks screen only move when a task has been marked completed. For a more accurate display of a phase's progress, you can set up EngineerOffice so the bars will display progress based on the estimated percentage of completion entered for each task.


Do the following to use the estimation feature:

  1. Click Projects on the navigation bar.
  2. Select a listed project to edit.
  3. On the Tasks tab, select the Use Estimated Completion for Progress check box.
  4. Select a phase and then click Edit on the grid for the related tasks.
  5. In the Task Detail View screen, enter a percentage of the hours completed in the Estimated field.
  6. Click Done.
  7. Repeat steps 4-6 to enter estimates for additional tasks.
  8. Select Save from the Action drop-down list on the Tasks button panel to save your changes and update the progress bars.
