After you install this update, you can now go to the projects in which the calendar is used, and use the organizer to delete it.
The method that you choose depends upon the nature of the work being performed and your organization’s reporting requirements.
In order to track their progress and forecast the remaining timeline, work effort, and costs for the project, Microsoft Project offers three progress tracking methods: Regardless of the selected progress tracking method, however, you will still need to manually mark project milestones as completed within Microsoft Project by using the ‘Percent Complete’ method and entering ‘100%’.

Throughout the controlling phase of a project, the Project Manager gathers progress information from the project team to reflect the overall progress of the project as well as to forecast the estimated time, work effort, and cost required to finish the project.
The exercise of measuring progress and entering it into the project schedule should happen on a periodic basis; the frequency of this exercise depends upon the amount of detail required to manage the project (more detail may require more frequent updates) and your reporting needs: · Once every week · Once every two weeks · Twice every month · Once every month Project progress measurement and schedule updating should happen according to the following cyclical process throughout the entire controlling stage of the project: · Capture Task Progress: The Project Manager collects information about the progress that team members have made during the current update cycle, perhaps verbally through a status meeting, a written log, or online system such as Microsoft Project Server.
To save a baseline, click on Tools | Tracking | Save Baseline.
This brings up the Save Baseline dialog box, shown in Figure A. The best way to see how your project’s progress matches up to the baseline is to switch to the Tracking Gantt view.
This allows you to compare the actual values, durations, and work associated with the completion of the project’s tasks to your original baseline plan.
