Update "To Date" Productivity Units from Viewpoint

Similar to how the budgeted units and hours flow from Viewpoint to FWC; it would be very valuable if "To Date" (Currently Completed units from JC Progress Entry) would also get synced.

Imagine implementing MFM not from very beginning on a project. I have to enter a cummulative entry for all the phases for each project that i implement and this is not the correct way to do it.

    It seems strange that this will bring in the budget information but isn't pulling in the current progress as this information all in the same View in the Viewpoint Database.  Without there being a true-up or consolidation the productivity screen quickly loses value if we can't trust that some validation in Progress is being performed.  This would even effect new jobs if any progress entry wasn't recorded in the MFM Side of the application.  Please work on a solution asap.

    This is critical.  One of the main purposes of this product is to allow MFM users the ability to see up to date and accurate cost and production information.  Not only is it useless on jobs implemented that are already part way completed, but if there ever were to be an update made in Vista, Mobile Field Manager would immediately be providing inaccurate information and there would be no warning to the tablet (or Field Work Center) user! 

    Please make this a priority as it would be hugely beneficial.

    Not just projects that implement part way through, but also to give flexibility in where units are entered from.  Many users preferr the JC Progress Entry screen due to ease of use, information provided, and filtering options on cost type etc.  Users shoul dbe able to enter from either side, Vista or MFM.  Same for labor hours.
