Too often failing projects surprise us. At one point it seemed you were well aligned with the project progress, but as the project delivery deadline approaches, you suddenly realize you’re off-track by a few days! 

You wonder “how could I miss the deadline?” It is the most common problem that all project teams face.

So it is extremely important for project teams to have real time task progress status on a daily basis.

I am bringing you the Orangescrum Learning Series to help with common project management problems we encounter every day.

Today I will explain how you can track the progress of tasks quickly and efficiently.

It’s easy to check the status of any task of any project in the Task List page.

The task bar will give the overall details of task progress in terms of how many tasks are in NEW, IN PROGRESS, RESOLVED & CLOSED with numbers & percentage of that project.


So how do you get that report?

You create tasks, assign them to your team members & the member is supposed to work on them & update the status & progress about the task.

As a manager you’re managing a lot of projects. So you need status reports in real time, if your boss or client wants to know. And here this task status bar provides quick help.

If you go a little deeper & want to know which task types are completed & which are yet to be done, then task type report will give an idea about your team members’ efficiency.

This report gives a clarity which “type” of tasks are pending & which are going well like “Development” type of tasks are higher than “Bugs”. This indicates a problem with the development team. Either your development team is overloaded or short-skilled/slow in execution. Subsequently that takes down the productivity of the team & increases the cost & time of the project as well.

As per the report, you can directly reach to them (the team member or the department) & find out the underlying cause and if they need assistance or resource.

So how you’ll define the Task Type in Task?

We recommend to define a Task type for a task, so that you’ll get an accurate analysis of your teams or departments. While creating a task, you can see an option to select a “task type”.

If you don’t find your task type, then you can create your own task type from the “Task Type” field during “create task” or from the Task Type page under the Company Setting.
