Hour 17. Tracking Work on the Project > Recording Actual Work

Recording Actual Work

By default, when you enter values in the actual duration fields (Actual Duration, Remaining Duration, Percent Complete) for a task that has resource assignments, Project uses those entries to calculate actual work for each of the assignments, uses the actual work to calculate actual cost, and then sums the assignment work and costs in the task fields.

You can also enter actual work for the assignments manually instead of accepting the values Project creates. This method can add more precision to your records for resource work and costs, especially when some of the resources work more than others on a task. If you enter amounts directly into the assignment's Actual Work field, Project updates the task's Actual Duration and Percent Complete fields to incorporate your entries.
