Reopening closed timesheet periods in Microsoft Project 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • When a closed timesheet period has to be reopened does that cause data from pending timesheets (that were not approved at the time of the timesheet period close) to pull through?

    We have noticed differences in actual costs at the end of the month and the only thing we can correlate it to is when we had to go back and reopen timesheet periods - data was then allowed to run through the system....is this a fair assumption?

    I would highly appreciate any assistance with this question.

    Many thanks,

    IH

  • When a timesheet period is opened, it allows all resources to "Submit" their timesheets, that have been pending. However, they will not be submitted or approved "automatically", without manual intervention.

  • Hi,

    I agree with Prasanna. Reopening a closed timesheet period will not trigger any approval or actuals transfer. It will only allow team members to submit actuals from this period.

    I guess the discrepency you are seeing comes from another root cause. Maybe you could detail your scenario and Project Server version and patch level so we can help you.


    Hope this helps,
