What are Assumptions?

An assumption is a factor that is considered to be true, real, or certain without confirmation. Planning a project or activity may involve making a few assumptions. Any assumptions should later be investigated to confirm they are correct and adjustments made.

Assumptions Status

This section is where the user can track the project or activity assumptions.

By using the dropdown field, the user can select the most appropriate overall status for the assumptions and provide any associated commentary. This information can be updated in real-time.

Adding Assumptions

An Assumption is something believed to be true or certain without confirmation. Any assumptions made should later be investigated to confirm they are correct. For example, I'm assuming there will be staff available to install the sever over the weekend or, I'm assuming there will be availability at the hotel we like on that date.

Assumptions can be added to the project table via Actions > Add. 


Assumption information can be entered using the simple form containing dropdowns, text, date and user picker fields.
