The Progress Spotlight feature is SureTrak’s updating tool; it shows the activities that
should have been worked on during a specified timeperiod. You can also simply drag the
data date line with the mouse until you reach the date you want. SureTrak spotlights the
activities that fall between the last data date and the new data date. Once you spotlight
activities, you can automatically status them, manually update them, or cut and copy
them.

To use the Progress Spotlight feature

1Click the Progress Spotlight icon to add a timeperiod equal to the smallest increment
of the displayed timescale from the previous data date.

2Click the Progress Spotlight icon again to increase the area between the previous
data date and the new date by another timescale increment. To decrease the
spotlighted area by one time increment, click the Progress Spotlight icon while
pressing the Shift key.

3Update activities as described later in this chapter, or reschedule the project
according to the new data date immediately by pressing Ctrl+F9.

Depending on the density of the timescale above your Bar chart, you may not be able to
position the data-date line on the exact date and time you want to use. In this case, enter
the data date in the Update Progress dialog box and have SureTrak estimate progress as
of that date before you update individual activities.

Tools, Schedule Now or press F9 to reschedule after you finish updating;
