Delete tasks in My Work / Task RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear all,

    We want to keep the project in Project Center. And the project manager is not here.

    How to force - delete Tasks in My Work / Tasks for users? After delete, they will not see any deleted tasks (not strikethrough and wait to approve from Project manager)?

    Thanks all.

    If your Project manager is not available & you want to remove the Tasks from team member's My task. There are two ways to do it
    1.An administartor of PWA, can Close tasks to update feature & once the PM is back She/he can iopen these tasks & delete/modify as desired. for mor einfo , Please see below article:

    2. Administrator or someone having permissions to open/edit the plan, can open the project in MS project & set the Publish field value as "No" for the desired tasks & publish the plan. If PM have already published a task and then later set the Publish field to No, when you publish the project again, the task will be removed from any assigned resources. for more info , please see below article:
