Thank you. This gets me started on the right track.
Just to clarify, I may have used the incorrect term. One issue is individuals tracking their progress towards completion of activities accurately, and I think that ultimately we want to do it via their own estimates (mainly given that it is knowledge work).
This being the case, my attention goes to ‘what is the most user friendly (on their end) way to achieve this?’. I began looking into SharePoint syncing with MS Project, and each individual having a task list on SharePoint that they can update (and then I can sync in MS Project), seems relatively reasonable. Would you still recommend MS Project Server for greater user friendliness for those that will be updating their tasks’ status?
