Have you ever wondered how the task level “% Complete” field and the project level “% Complete Calculation Method” field are related.

How the “% Complete Calculation Method” field is set will determined if the Task % Complete field is “read only” or “available for editing”

The “% Complete Calculation Method” must be set to EFFORT for the EAC to populate on Baselines. Changing this method will affect how Task % Complete is displayed and calculated. Changing % Complete method will affect your earned value metrics

The “% Complete Calculation Method” field is set to MANUAL (not Effort or Duration) in order for the Task “% Complete” field to “available for editing”.
