Does 'saving' my effort report change the status from Uncertified?

No. While it is recommended to save values prior to final certification, the effort report remains in an ‘Uncertified’ status. The report does not move to either an ‘Archived’ or a ‘Post-Certification’ status until the Certify Effort Report button is selected and all of the certification steps are completed successfully.
