Graphical Indicators at sub-project / project level???

Graphical Indicators at sub-project / project level???

Graphical Indicators at sub-project / project level???

Can someone tell me how to get graphical indicators to work at a rolled-up level?  I get can them to show up only at a task level but not at a sub-project or project level (rolled up tasks).  

Look at this link.  The yellow cells show the location where I would like indicators to show up.



RE: Graphical Indicators at sub-project / project level???

Well, where are you getting the values that generate the graphical indicators?  Usually, you would set graphical indicator column's values to be equal to some other column that does rollup calculations.

RE: Graphical Indicators at sub-project / project level???

I'm doing various columns and calculations.  But for this particular example one of the column is a customized for completeness.  It takes the % complete values and breaks them into 0-33% (white circle), 34-66% (half circle), 67-100% (full circle).  

But still same problem.  The overall projects (A & B) have no associated indicator at all!


RE: Graphical Indicators at sub-project / project level???

Yes, I figured it out.  There is an option within the customize fields, under Graphical Indicators.   I few boxes above that you can check: Nonsummary, Summary or Project Summary.   

RE: Graphical Indicators at sub-project / project level???

Normally, the default is to for the summaries to inherit the behavior of the lower level tasks.
