cProjects - Gantt chart
In cProjects - Gantt chart I am able to see the see the graph with start and finish date. I want to add actual finsih date. For eg. Task _1 start date is 01.06.2014 and finish date is 03.06.2014, but the task was completed by 6.06.2014. I need bring the actul completed date also in the graph. Please
help. We are in cProjects 4.0
Is there any standard report ?

By standard, any project management tools will have only one bar which displays your ES/LS dates with EF/LF if no actual dates are there. If actual dates are there, then those dates will be considered for display in gantt chart.
In cProjects, actuals are indicated by the small line within the bar which comes based on the percentage completion field.
Your next question will be, then how do I compare plan vs actual?
For this you need to take a snapshot of our project after release and keep that as a baseline plan and use version comparison to compare & see baseline and current scheduled plan.
In cProjects 4.0, you will only have tabular 'Version comparison', if you need graphical gantt chart for version comparison, then that feature is available only in PPM 5.0 and above.
You can refer the below screenshot of PPM5.0 version comparison, where
- Hatched bars - Baseline plan(From version snapshot)
- Normal bars (Blue & red) - Scheduled plan
- Bar with line in the center shows the completion activities.
Hope this clarifies your question.
