The Progress Update Feature

ScheduleReader enables project participants to insert updates for on-going activities contained within the XER or XML schedule from the Activities and Assignments Views.

The activity update proposals, are inserted through ScheduleReader and saved in separate .xls/.xlsx file created while in progress update mode and saved on a location where the schedule file is located. This enables the scheduler to quickly gather the centralized feedback of each activity’s progress from all field members on the project in a ready to update format.

The scheduler can then review the reported status of activities within the Excel file and choose whether to import the new values and update the original schedule in Primavera P6 or reject the proposals.

  • Secure two-way communication between scheduler and onsite teams
  • Real-time feedback on project & activities status reported from site
  • Centralized feedback from all teams in a single point of access

Team Members Working on Site Send Progress Updates to Scheduler

The update proposals are saved within an separate Excel (.xls) file next to the location of the original schedule, a shared location or a personal folder. This allows the feedback from multiple employees to be centralized in a single point of access, which eases the scheduler job to gather the status of the different activities in progress.

With the Progress Update feature, team members on the field can also insert proposals to add new Activities in progress or inform the scheduler which activities are canceled and should be deleted from the plan. They can also view their updates directly in the Gantt Chart and see how potential updates will impact the milestones in the project.
