Physical Percent Complete

Physical Percent (%) Complete custom field shows alternate entered percentage of task completion. You can use this custom field if Percent (%) Complete custom field doesn’t reflect the real values based on Actual Duration. For example, you have a project to paint the wall of the ten-storied building. It takes 30 minutes to paint the first storey; however the second storey can be painted in 40 minutes because you need to lift swinging platform, paint and other materials one storey higher. It will take 50 minutes to paint the third storey. It will take 10 minutes more to paint each next storey. The last tenth storey can be painted in 2 hours. You need to spend in total 12 h 50 min (750 minutes) to complete this task. If you paint first 5 storeys, theoretically the task is halfway done because you painted 5 of 10 storeys. So completion based on duration is 50%. However, in fact, you spent 70 minutes of total 750 minutes that is about 10 % of real completion. You can use Physical Percent (%) Complete custom field when you need to view, edit, sort or filter the real percentage of task completion for tasks or projects.
