    I suspect that there is a bug in the Status Date feature which – if I remember correctly – did not exist in Project 2003.

    If I set the Status Date to Friday March 2nd for example and click “Mark on Track”, the Task Progress Bar extends to the start of Friday, but not the end of Friday, as it did in 2003.

    I did some investigations and looked at the dates including minutes and found that setting the Status Date to Friday actually sets the date to Friday 08:00, and not Friday 17:00, as I had expected.

    That’s strange because I would expect that if I ask someone to report their status by Friday, they will refer to Friday as end of the week, and not Friday morning.

    Bug or feature?

    It’s interesting that it works that way in 2003, so something must have changed since then.  You are correct that the status date in 2010 and I believe in 2007 is set to 8am.  I don’t know why but it is now a feature…:-)

    This is an issue/problem/bug.  I have not fully investigated the behaviour, which is not present in 2007, but to be 100% confindent you need to put “3/5/12 5pm” as the status date (including the time).  Sometimes it seems to do OK without the time, but as I said, I haven’t fully investigated.
