how are protected actuals in my plan getting adjusted? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Project Server 2010

    Users on timesheets, SEM, timesheet actuals are protected; leveling in plan is manual, overallocation leveling options are turned off


    • Sep 27 PWA timesheet hours are as follows for a given task (M,T,W,R,F): 0,0,4,2, and .5
    • After submittal, approval and publishing the project, when you open again in Project Pro, from the server:
    • I now see M-F values of 0,0,4,2, and .52h !?
    • The task is still incomplete, with remaining work, was not (cannot be) set % manually, as actuals are protected.

    Why does the server/Pro adjust my .5 hr entry to .52?  What am I missing here?

    We enabled 'Protect User Updates' to prevent this very thing... then it happens anyway?

    Thanks in advance,

  • Hi,

      If your focus is to control the adjustments on the Actual, Single Entry Mode would be the best option.

  • Hi Marty,

    Is your PS2010 instance patched correctly? I think this is a known issue correected by the June 2012 fix:

    "After you accept status updates for a project in Project Server 2010, the project displays actual work that is submitted through PWA as an incorrect decimal value. For example, a project displays .48h as the actual work even though you submitted .5h as the actual work."

    See the list of PS2010 fix:

    Hope this helps,
