    and then assign one task to resource of one day.

    when resource see its task at its timesheet . there is 8 hours planned work task.

    and when resource enter 4 hour actual in this task.

    the planned is also changed to 4 hour and also the same in Resource usage view.

  • John Eddie --
    In Microsoft Project and Project Server, actual work always replaces planned work.  That is why you are seeing what you see, even if unexpected.  This is why your PMs need to save a Baseline in their projects before team members begin entering progress in PWA.  If the PM saves the Baseline, then he/she can compare the original planned work for the task in the Task Usage view, which would show the 8 hours per day.  Hope this helps.
