6. Project progress 2

Introduction In this module, you will learn how to update your progress by marking tasks as completed. You will also create a progress report.

Before you start You have been working on your translation and have finished a task. You now want to update your progress.

Why this is important For the Assignments and Progress to work well, you need to mark the tasks you have finished. This allows Paratext 9 to make the next task available for the other team members. It also gives Paratext accurate information on your progress for the reports. Creating a progress report helps you prepare a report for your supervisors and funders.

What you are going to do You will open the assignments and progress window and update the progress made. You will then produce a report.
