Actual Date

Enter the date for posting progress.

We recommend that the date be in the batch month. Posting to dates outside the batch month may cause discrepancies between progress and projections, since projections work strictly off the batch month, and Current Complete (in Progress Entry) includes any prior posting through the batch month and date entered.

For example, if you enter progress in Batch Month 06/XX, but Date 07/01/XX, and then go into Cost Projections for Batch Month 06/XX. Because projections look at only the batch month, the projections batch will include the posting for 07/01/XX. However, if you then open a progress batch in Batch Month 06/XX, Date 06/30/XX, Current Complete will not include the 07/01/XX posting.

You can also leave this field blank

Leave this field blank if you are entering progress on more than one actual date in the same batch.

When importing progress

When importing progress from a 3rd party application (for example Heavy Job or Bid2Win) and you have imported progress on multiple actual dates, you can use this field to filter the progress that displays in the lower portion of the form by actual date. For example select a date in this field and only progress with that actual date will display in the lower portion of the form.
