How can I undo check-out for a project? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    There doesn't seem to be a way to revert a checked-out project (which has had changes made to it) to a state right before it was checked-out.

    In other words I'd like to discard the check-out.

    Is there a way to do that?

    Thank you, Caesar.


    Thanks! Caesar.

  • Hi,

      I you have scheduled daily backups for project you can restore a previous version of the project using Administrative restore.

      Check following link for reference.

  • Thank you, I'm hoping there was a way for a Team Member to discard check-outs.

    Thanks! Caesar.

  • There is not way a team member can discard checkout. It would either be the project owner, or Admin or someone with the right privileges.

  • To add to Faizan's good advice, you should formalize your business need. Actually a team member is not supposed to edit the project plan, so cannot check out a project. I don't know if it suits your need but any project manager can force the check-in for his own projects from the project center and administrators can force check-in for any projects.

    Hope this helps,

  • Hi,

    Yes, I'm new to all of this. My understanding is:

    1. The project manager creates the schedule and assigns tasks to resources
    2. Resources updates completion rate as they progress

    I'm confused with #2. I'm thinking the resources click the "Save" button once done updating the completion rate.

    Can the resource, at this point, "Unsave" to revert to the earlier completion rate?

    Also, where can I read more about the workflow to use with PS2013?

    Thank you, Caesar.


    Thanks! Caesar.

  • Indeed you have to understand the update process used by Project Server and also who does what. Basically (very basically...):

    1. The PM creates a project plan with tasks and assignes resources on tasks, which creates assignments.
    2. The team members goes to the task page or timesheet page in the web interface (PWA) and update their progress on the tasks.
    3. The PM approves the task updates and publish the project: the task progress is pushed into the project plan.

    Note that there are a few questions to answer in order to start (timesheet or task update only) and quite a few configuration also (ie security...). I'd advice you to get close to a Project Server consulting firm in order to support you.

    See some references below (some are for 2010 version but the process is the same in 2013):
