“By default, Project calculates actual work for assignments based on percent complete values that you enter for tasks. You can turn this setting off in the Project Options dialog box.”
But I don’t see such an option on the Project Options form (File > Options) anywhere. Under File > Options > Schedule, you can turn off the option “Actual costs are always calculated by Project” to make the Actual Cost independent of % Complete. But turning off that option has no impact on Actual Work, which will still be recalculated every time % Complete is changed.
Any tips and tricks on how to make % Complete and Actual Work independent of each other as Microsoft indicated we can do?
