Project 2010 Timesheet - % Complete updated - problem with actual work RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I have a problem with one project in my Project Server 2010.

    My project manager has changed the % Complete value to 100% and after this operation for 'affected tasks' I have situation like on attached screen.

    Can I undo this operation???

  • This is expected, when the PM marks % complete on task, without adjusting the Remaining work. Project then assumes that the work was completed as planned and populates the values as you indicate.

    While this may not be the most robust method, here is what I would do:

    • I will assume you are using timesheets.
    • From a timesheet report, figure out the actuals that have been submitted.
    • Overwrite the Actual Work in MS project pro with this value.
    • That will reset the % complete back to some non-100% value, and make the remaining work non-zero.
    • Now Zero out the remaining work, and then mark the task 100% complete.
    • Make sure there is no remaining duration left, as well.
    • I think you will have to delete and recreate the timesheet, (I will need to test this step).

  • Thanks for you replay and yes - you have right.

    But I have problem because some affected users have their actuals reported to task view

    I cannot reject somehow these changes?

  • I do not think there is a way to reject the task updates that have already been approved.

  • so tell me - in this moment if some people use task view there is no possibility to restore their actuals?

  • Only one other way I can think of is that, (other than restoring the project back to a previous state)

    • each PM could go into their approval center (or admin go in as a delegate),
    • click on History >> Status Updates and click on each task name to reveal the history.
    • Manually input that data into Project professional

    I do not think there is any database query you could run, since if the project have been published since the updates were made, the database information is already updated.
