    We have Project Server 2010 and have the timesheet function set up as Single entry mode.  I have seen on a number of occasions where a timesheet is entered and the Timesheet and Status Updates are approved but when checking the schedule some time later, the actual hours in the schedule are different to the hours entered via the timesheet.

    I can confirm that the schedules have not been subsequently updated manually to enter different hours.

    In a current example, the planned hours are based on 40% units for a 40hr week which spreads the hours as 3.2 hrs per day (16 hrs per week).  The user actually works 2 full days per week (eg 8hr on two separate days - although the actual days varies from week to week).  He enters these hours in the timesheet (does not enter 0 hrs for the days he doesn't work), however once the Status Update is approved, in some weeks, one or two of the other days have the 3.2hrs recorded as actual hours.

    This does not happen every week and is not consistent regarding which days the incorrect hours appear. Has anyone ever seen this behaviour and if so, do you know how to resolve it?

    This is not an isolated incident and I am losing faith in relying on the schedule for the actual costs that are driven from this data.

    Hi All,

    It might be a silly question to ask but just wondering how to add comments in resource assignments view for a task?

    Or do we need to add this somewhere else? Tried adding the comments from Task window by using option "Comment on Submit" but still no luck.

    Can anyone please help on this?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi All,

    I am using Project server 2013 SP1 On-Prim. I have 2 custom fields one task and one project. both are formula field as mentioned below.

    When updating and publishing from MSP client, project field value is coming properly in Project Centre. But when updating schedule using PWA browser, schedule gets updated and published and i can see the updated value in Schedule fields but project field in project centre is not showing updated value as it should be as per the formula. If i publish the same from MSP client, it will update the project field value properly and now can see updated value in project centre.

    ----------

    Task Field Name - Planned % Complete

    Formula - IIf([Baseline Start] > Date(), 0, IIf(Date() > [Baseline Finish], [Weightage], (Date() - [Baseline Start]) / ([Baseline Finish] - [Baseline Start]) * [Weightage]))

    ----------

    Project Centre Field Name -Planned % Complete (Project)

    Formula - [Planned % Complete]

    ----------

    Please clear if publishing from MSP client is must in order to get project centre formula field value updated. and if it does not work in PWA browser. If yes please let me know the reason.

    Hope i am clear. Waiting for response.

    Hi,

    We have had an issue since the start of the year where recurring tasks in a project with a future end date are not being displayed in users time sheets in PWA (Project Server 2013).  Some of the projects have been saved / re-published and we have advised their timesheet managers to remove and re-add their names from the project that they have been working on.  In some cases this has fixed the issue but for only the current time period not for future timesheets.

    This issue has only come about from the start of the new year.

    I have acted as a delegate for a number of users and in each case the tasks can be seen with future end dates from the users task view.  However when I access their timesheet these tasks are not being shown.  In all; this is affecting 23 projects across 1000 + users

    Can anyone help and offer some further advice.

    thanks

    I have migrated Project server from 2010 to 2016 which has three servers architecture (Web Font end, application and database server). Now I am verifying all OLAP cube and other excel reports in browser but these all reports are throwing below error.

    Hi All

    There is a requirement cropped from my client, I am not sure how to resolve it. I have a people picker custom field at my Project PDP which is filled by my Project Manager (PM) and Project Approver (PA) name is provided here, while creating the project.

    Now the requirement is that whenever Project Manager uploads any document in the project site of that project, the document should go to the PA for the document approval. How can it be performed using 'HTTP service' in SharePoint designer.

    Apart, is there any other alternate way to perform this?

    Thanks

    Hi guys,

    I'm seeing some very strange behaviour for what seems to be one particular tasks with one project. in Project Server 2010.

    The PM assigns a resource to that task and then publishes the project.  Publish works fine and the project is checked-in.

    The resource then cannot see that tasks in their Timehseet (we use SEM), but I've logged on as that user and cannot see that tasks with the My Tasks either.

    Thing is, if I go to the Resource Center I can see an assignement for that task and that resource, with the resource being set as the assignment owner.  The Default Assignment owner for that resource is set to the same.  The resource is set as commited for Booking Type.

    Not sure where else to look.

    Any help appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Lee

    Hi Project Server Experts!

          I am new to Project Server and I need help understanding how to accomplish this task:  I want tasks assigned to generic resources to show up in the task list of the related people managers.  This way the people managers will be able to re-assign the task to a named resource.  How do I accomplish this?  I tried assigning the people managers as the assignment owners at the task level for each generic resource assignment, but this didn't work either.  Do I need to use RBS?

          This seems like it should be easy to accomplish!

    Thanks,

    Matt

    We've had a lot of reports for timesheet users that they have tasks missing from their timesheets. We've checked that the start and finish date within the project is set correctly (publishing afterwards) and if the task has been locked but neither has turned up any results.

    This is happening on multiple projects where they have reoccurring tasks. Tasks for Q4 Start at 01/09/16 - 21/12/16, then the same tasks repeat for Q1 with start and finish dates of 01/01/17 - 01/03/17 (example dates used).  Q4 and Q1 represent a summary of multiple tasks.

    We've run out of ideas and our users are concerned that their time sheets aren't getting filled in correctly.

  • 01/18/17--04:13: Task Progress Update
  • Hi,

    I want to update Task Progress (% Complete) of multiple Projects in bulk, like:

    All tasks whose Finished date is before January 2016 are marked 100% completed.

    How can I achieve this? Can any SQL query helps in this?

    Thanks,
