Progress / Status Reporting for Mulitple Tasks & Milestones

Currently progress reporting is very limited.  Progress can only be tracked at task level.  It is not reported anywhere.  

Task Progress can be seen only at the individual task level in the task, but even that requires 2 clicks to view.

Tasks are good for reminding the owner that an item is open/due or complete.

However, as a project manager, as great as the project tasks are at defining and distributing tasks it is very difficult to view progress & status across  multiple tasks related to multiple milestones.

Need the following

  • Task progress report by Project
  • Within a project, Milestone progress based on roll up of associated task progress

Does not need to be elegant to add great value.  A list of tasks with % complete would be VERY helpful.

Thank you!

  • Casting a vote for a visual indicators (stop, play, pause, etc.) to be displayed at the Task List level.  This seems like an easy win since the indicators are already available at the Task Detail level.  A progress bar or % for those tasks in progress would be GREAT!

  • I just marked a task as "in progress" but then noticed that there isn't anywhere that shows you that, other than when you're in the task detail. With the way it is, it's pretty much useless.

    Couldn't there at least be some sort of visual indicator showing the task progress (if it's been marked in progress) whenever you're viewing lists of tasks (in projects or on the main tasks list)?

  • Agree that the Status bar is useless the way that it is. It would be much more useful to have it show up in the task list as well- that way you would be able to tell which of your tasks are in progress, deferred, not started, etc., with a quick glance down your list.

  • Would love to have progress or status indicators on Task lists.  Any progress on this since the beta program 15 months ago?

  • My vote for a Progress indicator visible in the Task list - actually visible anywhere in addition to INSIDE the task

  • I second this - we need to be able to see tasks progress in a snapshot, otherwise the field is pretty much useless.

  • I agree that there should be some way to see within a group of tasks those tasks that are in progress.  This will allow me to ignore in progress tasks until later in the day and work on the ones that are not in progress
