  • Hi,

    I am not sure if you are using "Tasks" or "Timesheet". Creating of tasks or assignments can be found at "Add Row". See sample below.

    Do you see this button? Or is it greyed out? If you can't use ist: are you using SharePoint Permission Mode or Project Server Permission mode? (If Project Server Permission Mode is enabled, you will find a "Manage Categories" in Settings - PWA Settings).

    When permission mode is anabled and you see the button but it is grey for new tasks or assignments, team members may just not be allowed to do so. If this is the case, lett us know to provide a description to enable.

    But first of all: Do you see the buttons Add Row? Do you want to use /Tasks.aspx or Timesheet.aspx?

    Regards

  • Solved- Problem vas the way we had added new ressorses on in PWA. We had not marked for " user can be added as a ressors", and connected trough user acount with e-mail. We had to remove the ressors from every project. save and publish it, close it. Then add the ressors the correct way. Then we were up and running in the timesheet and tasksheet until next problem.

  • Hi Ernst,

    only members of a project team can self assign to an existing task or create a new task.

    To add people to your project's team, open project center. Either mark the line of your project and click on "Build Team" in ribbon. Or click on project's name in Project Center and click on Build Team on tab Project.

    In bith cases, add resources to your team (adding them to right column). After saving, these resources should be able to use "Add Row".

    Regards

  • Hi Barbara, in the tasksheet, the 2 upper ones are grey( team task ) is useable. In the timesheet everyone is usable. We are using sharepoint mode.  

    Get the timesheet up and running is our first priority. 

    Regards

  • Hi Ernst,

    sorry, this should have been my first question, but I just realize now that you see all commands but no projects.

    Please open your project and publish. If you are working in browser, open Project Detail Page "Schedule", go to tab Tasks. There you have a "Publish". Only published projects and tasks are available to select from.

    Does that help?

    Success with your further experience!
