Manager unable to see updated value of a custom field RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Consider the following scenario for Project server 2010:

    • A team member is assigned to a task  having a custom filled (Ticket) value (eg IR123).
    • The task is published to the team member.
    • The team member opens their timesheet and updates the Ticket value as IR1234.
    • The team member submits their timesheet.
    • The project manager approves the timesheet with Ticket Value (IR1234)  from the team member.

    In this situation, the task in the schedule of manager still shows the value of Ticket as IR123.

    How to fix this problem so that manager should be able to see the updated ticket value?

  • As designed. The answer is to apply an assignment view such as task usage. The value will be at the assignment level where it was entered. There is no way to roll these up to a task. Think about it. There is a one to many relationship between tasks and assignments. You should be able to write some VBA to surface these changes at the task level.
