Project Target Date Alert

Some projects have a fixed end date by which they must be completed. Workzone can help identify projects that are at risk for ending beyond their target end dates.

When creating or editing a project , you may specify a target end date for the project. This target end date will be displayed below the project name in the Task List. If the actual project schedule extends past the target end date, Projects will change the color of the target end date text on the Task List to bold red and will put a red caution symbol in the Status column for the project. This will indicate that there is a problem with the project schedule that needs to be addressed. The indicators will remain until the actual project schedule is brought back in line with the target end date.

Manager and Administrator user’s can edit an existing Target Date. On the Task List, clicking on the date just below the project title can change an existing date. Also, if no Target Date is currently set, clicking the project’s title and then clicking the blue Edit Project button in the top right will allow one to be set.
