Administrators can also enable status-based progress reporting for their instance. In this mode, each status is linked to a predetermined % Complete value, configurable in the admin settings. Teams can report progress by updating the status of work packages.

In contrast to work-based progress reporting (see above), status-based mode automatically calculates the Remaining work value.
