How to change actual effort in project plan when Projected Actual option is enable in Project Server 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have enable "Protect User Updates" option from PWA->Task Setting and Display->Only allow task updates via Task and Timesheets, to protect actual efforts in project plan that PM changes manually, however in some cases we need to allow actual effort changes in open projects so it there any way or workaround so that Administrator or PM can make changes in actual even though "Protect User Updates" option is enable. Please Help!!

  • Hi Rahul,

    Indeed when this option is activated, there is no way to directly update actual work in the project plan.

    The workaround is to temporary deactivate this option, more preferly not during office working hours to avoid unexpected project updates.

    A better workaround would be to ask the resource to recall, correct and submit again the timesheet, so the PM can approve an updated actual work. Finally the PM can use delegation to rscall and correct the timesheet for the resource.

    Hope this helps.
