Design a Custom Tracking View

Use the Tracking Setup Wizard in the Project Guide to help you set up a custom tracking view tailored to work-related progress information and how you're receiving it. The Tracking Setup Wizard facilitates your tracking efforts, whether progress information comes in automatically through Project Server and Project Web Access or you're entering information manually. Either way, the Tracking Setup Wizard helps you set up the tracking of work-related progress information.

To start the Tracking Setup Wizard, click Track on the Project Guide toolbar and then click the Prepare To Track The Progress Of Your Project link. Read the information in the Project Guide side pane and work through the steps, clicking the Save And Go To link at the bottom of the page when you're ready to move to the next step (see Figure 10-13). When finished, click the Save And Finish link.
