Once upon a time a project that I was managing running was fine, when all of a sudden due to dependencies of another project, senior management decided to freeze the project to focus on something else. Weeks later, management decided to change the concept of the previously frozen project and revamp the product.
I was wondering how I would depict this on MS Project. When we froze the project, % Complete was at about 65% with many tasks left open. I was thinking to set all Actual Finish dates to the date of freeze, which would make % Complete 100%. This could be misleading to stakeholders. They might think that we actually finished the project. If I left those tasks hanging, then the project would never seem to have been completed.
To sum up my question, how should I depict dropped tasks on MS Project, with the least risk of misleading information to senior management and stakeholders.
Additional information: The company I work for let's project managers freely choose their own tools as long as it showed information such as % Complete, a timeline, and breakdown tasks.
