Requesting Progress Information

You can quickly send an e-mail to resources requesting information about an assignment. To do this, follow these steps:

1 In your project plan, display the Gantt Chart or another task view.

2 Select the tasks for which you want progress information.

To select adjacent tasks, drag across them. To select nonadjacent tasks, click the first task, hold down the Ctrl key, and then click all the other tasks you want to select.

3 Click Collaborate, Request Progress Information.

4 In the message that appears, click OK.

Tip Quickly request assignment actuals

You can also right-click a task, click Request Progress Information, and then click OK.

After you request progress information, the Gantt Chart shows an indicator specifying that progress information has been requested and not yet received. When you receive workgroup messages containing actuals information from the team members and select the Update Project button, the indicators disappear.
