Once dates and/or durations have been updated on the canvas (i.e. statused), objects must be [anchor]actualized [/anchor]to complete the update process. Once actualized, the object becomes outlined in blue, and its dates and dependencies remain fixed unless purposely de-actualized. However, if a portion of an activity is finishing after the data date (i.e. a partially actualized or in-progress activity), the remaining duration will not be outlined in blue and may still be modified.
In addition, for activities, delays and hammocks, a new field Calculated Complete will appear in the property window showing the percent of duration completed (progressed duration divided by total duration). This field cannot be edited and will only display for actualized activities. To manually enter the percent of work completed, see [bookmark postid=”11422″ anchor=”data-date”]Statusing and Entering Percent Complete[/bookmark]. Instructions for actualizing are provided below.
NOTE: Each type of object has an individual tab and must be actualized within their respective tabs as noted above. For more info, see [bookmark postid=”8278″ anchor=”multiple-objects”]Bulk-Editing Objects[/bookmark].
NOTE: The CTRL key can be used to select non-adjacent activities.
