How do I change the status of gated work?

The status of work can easily be updated on the Summary page, in the Descendants module, in Project Central, in the Dashboard, or on the Edit Details page. This article describes how to change the status of gated work on the Summary page.

1. Click Project

Click Project
  • On the Icon Bar, click the Project button.

 Note: Clicking the Project button on the Icon Bar will take you directly to the Summary page of the last work you visited.

2. Update Gated Project with Inactive Status and Calculated % Complete Method

  • In the project header, click the Status hyperlink and select a status from the context sensitive drop-down menu.

Note: If the project has an inactive status and a percent complete method of task-based, duration-based, or effort-based, certain project statuses are not available until a deliverable becomes active. Updating a milestone or document deliverable status to 'Completed' will change available project statuses for task-based percent complete methods, but will have no impact on available project statuses for effort-based and duration-based percent complete methods.
