Task updates in Project Server 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We would like to separate % Work Complete, Work, Remaining Work, Actual work in the task updates on Project Server. For example, a resource is allocated to work 8 hours on a task. The resource records 50 % Work complete, but the remaining work should not automatically update, therefore allowing the resource to record two hours remaining work even though there may be 4 hours remaining.

    Thank you,

  • Jaco --

    What you want to do simply cannot be done in Project Server 2013.  This is because the % Work Complete, Work, Actual Work, and Remaining Work fields all depend on one another for their values.  Even though you may think you want to disconnect them, you cannot, as this is how the software works.  Therefore, I would recommend you rethink your reporting requirements in Project Server 2013 to align with how the software works.  Hope this helps.
