      Hi
      I want the Gant Chart color changes as the are progress in the task. If we are 50% finish with a task and put that into the % of finish column half of the gant chart task will have another color then the rest of the task.

      Jorun, great question. It is an obscure but relatively simple fix. While in the Gantt chart, go to the Format ribbon and then select Format / Bar Styles (in the bar styles group). Scroll down and select the Progress line (second from the bottom). On the bottom of that window is where you can set the style for the completed portion of a task including the color. You can also change the shape if you want to color in the entire bar. When you are done you should also change the Manual Progress to the same format. Good luck…
