How do I manually update completed gated projects?

During the Winter 2015 release PowerSteering inadvertently updated the status of some projects to Completed. In order to revert the project back to its correct state, users must first reactivate the last approved and / or skipped gate, and then advance to the current active gate. Below are the instructions for reactivating a gate, advancing to the active gate and updating the percent complete values for gated projects that were inadvertently updated to a Completed status by the Winter 2015 release. If you are using the Percent Complete Agent to set your percent complete values, the instructions for running that agent to restore those values is also provided.
