In RiskyProject remaining duration is calculated base % completed. It is done automatically. You can enter percent completed using Tracking tab in Task information dialog box (double click on Task ID and go to tracking tab).

You can also enter remaining duration in Tracking tab. Remaining duration entered in tracking tab affects probabilistic calculation only. It affects probabilistic calculation only. Remaining duration can be probabilistic. You can define distribution of remaining duration. First you may enter low, base, and high estimates of remaining duration. Then you can right click on item ID and select Distribution for remaining duration. You can select distribution for duration and define its parameters.


In the example abode you can see two task. For Task 1 we defined remaining duration. For Task 2 you enter percent completed on certain status date. In this case remaining duration will be calculated automatically and will not be presented within Tracking Chart view. Please note, that remaining duration column by default is available within Tracking Chart and Tracking Gantt views only. For other views, such as Project View you need to insert columns to present remaining duration.
