Disable the inclusion of effort last week in My Task page RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi people.

    Is there any way to prevent users to post their efforts on the "My Tasks" in the past? For example users can not include their hours last week, this week only?

    Thanks in advanced!

    The only way to prevent users from entering work in the past is if you are using Single Entry Mode (SEM) and the Project Server administrator closes past time periods.  If you are not using SEM, then if a task in the past is completed, the project manager can use the Close Tasks to Update feature, access from the Project Center page or Server Settings page in PWA, to close the task so that team members can no longer apply updates to it.  If the task has uncompleted work in the past, then there is no way to prevent team members from entering progress for the task in the past.  Therefore, I would recommend that you make this a training and performance issue with both your project managers and your team members.  Hope this helps.
