Whether you're tracking effort or not, the progress bars will indicate prog=
ress, but need to calculate it differently.
No Effort Tracking:
If you're not tracking effort, the progress bars will display the differenc=
e between the total 'Detail Estimate' and total remaining 'To Do'. For ins=
tance, if you have 3 tasks with a total 'Detail Estimate' of 7 (hours, for =
most people), and the total remaining 'To Do' is 3.5, the progress bar will=
be 50% across. =20
NOTE: if you didn't enter an original Detail Estimate for your tasks, there=
's no way to track progress - this may be the issue in your case. When you=
're entering tasks, you should enter the estimate in the 'Detail Estimate' =
field, and the 'To Do' field will auto-populate with that estimate.
With Effort Tracking:
For others listening on the thread that do track effort, the progress bars =
will display progress as a combination of total 'Done' (i.e. effort) versus=
remaining 'To Do'. So, if you've logged 3.5 hours of effort/done on some =
tasks, but there's a total of 3.5 hours of 'To Do' remaining, the progress =
bar will be 50% across.
I hope this helps,

We are not tracking effort, only work left to do. Are you saying that
if effort isn't tracked the progress bars will show no work done?
