Tracking actual time from people outside of the organization in Project Server 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • What is the best way to capture actual time spent from a vendor outside of my organization that do not have a user account in our Project Server 2010? I have looked into the Delegates option but using this I will need to have a user (and a license) for these type of resources. Is there any other way to capture their time if they only exist as resources in our Project Server 2010?

    If it were me, I would simply enter the actual progress of the vendor directly in the Microsoft Project 2010 enterprise project file.  To do this, the simplest method is to display the Gantt Chart view and then to apply the Tracking table.  In the Tracking table, you can enter progress by entering the task start date in the Actual Start field.  You can enter the amount of work performed to date in the Actual Work field.  When your vendor completes the work on the task, you can enter the date the vendor finished the task in the Actual Finish field.  Just a thought.  Maybe someone else will have additional thoughts for you.  Hope this helps.
