Only few tasks are visible in timesheet


  • Hi,

    We are using PWA timesheet just to monitor where time is being spent, so we are not using it to estimate and track actuals.  We had a plan for one month (4 weeks), team was reporting time and now I was asked to extend it to another month (4 more weeks).  Being a novice, I update the duration to 45 days from 24 and published the plan.  Now, we are not getting all the tasks in the timesheet for the extended period. For example, assume we have 20 tasks, we can see 18 tasks for the 5th week, 16 tasks for 6th week and so on.  If I add the task manually from the timesheet, I am able to add the missing task.  How do I fix this and make all the tasks available by default?

  • Hello,

    At a guess without having access to your project schedule, this will be due to the timesheet including tasks that are assigned to the current user in the current timesheet period - the other tasks are outside of the current timesheet period - so tasks are available / not available based on that. If a task was in a previous timesheet period and the task assignment was not completed, that task will show in later periods until it is completed.

    In addition to the sage reply from my colleague, PW, I would encourage you to have your team member navigate to the Tasks page in PWA.  By default, the Tasks page shows EVERY task the team member is assigned to.  Are the missing tasks there?  Let us know and we will try to help you.

  • Also if task are complete they will not show up.   Make sure every user has an assignment with hours.  Each task can have many users and assignments.  Its important that remaining work is for each.

    THen save and publish.
