The project language makes all language-dependent information for this language (project documentation and status information) available to all project members, independently of their logon language. You can only change documentation in the project language.

This tab allows you to enter the dates of the actual project start and finish and the actual work carried out in person days (PD).


The planned and actual data comprise the timespan of the entire project. Any dates specified for process steps, in the Business Blueprint or Realization phases, must lie within this timespan.

The remaining work required is calculated from the difference between the planned data and the actual data and generated as a percentage in the Completed field. You can manually change the remaining work entry at any time.
