Monitoring Project Issues

Issues tracking is integral to project management and team communication because most issues either arise from task activity or will affect task activity. By tracking issues related to a project, you can improve communication on project-related issues and ensure that problems are handled before they become crises.

With the issue tracker, team members can enter issues, assign ownership, track progress, record resolutions, and create related reports. The issues are stored on Project Server and are accessible through Project Web Access.

Depending on permissions, you and your team members can create an issue, set its priority, and assign responsibility. The issue page includes a due date, discussion of the issue, and date of resolution. Issues can be associated with affected tasks, documents in the document library, or other related issues.
