Default format color of gantt chart bars based on progress?

Task, summary.. bars can be formatted regarding shapem text and color.
I formatted my task/summary bars in blue, when finished they turn red.


'Finished' means when I put them manually on 100% complete.
Is there a way the bars are colored automatically red based on the progress compared with the current date rather than setting them manually to x% complete ?
thanx
roland

Project will not automatically mark a task 100% complete based upon the current date. Use the Update Project command to mark tasks complete based upon their expected schedule.

Sofie?

The Update Project command will update all tasks in the project that were scheduled to be finished by the Status date. I would not suggest automating any any further than the 3 clicks required.
