All users (including Collaborators) on all account types can see Project progress. The Project Progress is an experimental feature and as a result, it: may have bugs, is subject to change, and may be discontinued at any time. Please feel free to use the feedback links in Wrike Labs to share your thoughts on this beta feature.
- Important Information
- Access Progress Panel
- Available Progress Metrics
- Color Coding Based on Progress
Wrike automatically calculates your projects’ progress based on selected metrics. You can see a project progress bar:
- In Android app: in the Browse View and Starred section.
- In the Workspace (once enabled from Labs): in the Project info panel, Project Dashboard widget, and on the timeline portion of the Gantt Chart (to the right of the project’s name).
- Progress is displayed only for projects which have entered start and finish date.
- Tasks which live in a project’s subprojects and subfolders affect project progress.
- Deferred and Cancelled tasks don’t alter project progress.
- Star important projects for simpler access to information about their progress.
- You may have different progress metrics enabled in your Android app and Wrike web version, therefore progress values may differ.
From Wrike Android App
- Open a Project 1.
- Tap an “info” icon on the right of the progress bar 2.
From Wrike Workspace (Web Version)
Admins on all account types can enable Project Health.
Step 1. Enable from Labs
- Go to Wrike Labs.
- Scroll to “Project Health”.
- Check the box next to “Enable”.
Step 2. Access the Panel
- Open the Project info panel.
- Click the progress button (a rectangular icon with a percentage value indicating current progress) in the upper right-hand corner.
There are two metrics available for evaluating Project progress. You can enable both of them or use each of them separately. Only active (enabled) metrics count towards total progress.
How it’s calculated
Progress by number of completed tasks
The number of completed tasks is divided by the total number of tasks and the result is multiplied by 100%.
Progress by number is calculated as
Progress based on the duration of completed tasks
The duration of completed Tasks is divided by the total duration of Tasks in the Project and the result is multiplied by 100%.
Progress by duration is calculated as:
All active (enabled) metrics are added up, and the result is divided by the number of active metrics.
Total progress is calculated as:
- Open the Progress Panel.
- In the Android app: Tap the slider to the right of the metric you want to enable (disable).
In Wrike Workspace: Check (uncheck) the box to the left of the metric you want to enable (disable).
Enable color-coding to make the progress bar and Progress Panel header appear in the color that matches current progress. If a Project’s progress color and status don’t match, Wrike suggests you change the status.
To enable color coding:
- Open the Progress Panel.
- In the Android app: Tap the slider to the right of “Color coding”.
In Wrike Workspace: Check the box to the left of “Project health”.
Projects can have four different colors depending on their progress:
- Green: isn’t overdue and has zero risks.
- Yellow: isn’t overdue, has at least one risk, but not all are risks.
- Red: is overdue or contains all risks.
- Grey: Cancelled, Completed or On hold Project status or dates are incorrect (i.e. its finish date is earlier than start date).
🖐Note! If color-coding is disabled, progress status bar is blue.
- The deviation is more than 25%.
- At least one Task in a Project is overdue.
- Due date of at least one Task in a Project is later than the Project’s finish date.
The deviation shows if your Project is on track. High deviation means that there’s a big difference between actual and planned progress.
We calculate deviation as:
Deviation = (1 - Actual Progress / Planned Progress) * 100%
- Planned progress is the number of days passed since the start of the Project, divided by the Project duration.
- Actual progress is progress calculated based on active metrics.
