Updated Tasks not appearing in Project Schedule PWA 2016 RRS feed

  • Question

  • When our users update their tasks in PWA from the "Tasks" page the task is not being updated in the Project Schedule after it is approved by a manager. Is this a bug or is there something we should be having them do to get this functionality to work? 

    1. End user goes to Project Center
    2. Click "Tasks" from the quick nav
    3. Updates their tasks and either click "Send Update" or "Mark Complete" 
    4. Manager approves the updated task
    5. User clicks on "Projects" from quick nav (after tasks is approved)
    6. Navigates to the corresponding project and finds their task.
    7. Task still at 0% Complete

    I opened the project in MS Project Professional 2016 to see if either the "%Complete" or the "% Work Complete" had updated and nothing was updated.

  • Hi Isaac,

    The manager needs to publish the update after approving, in order to push it into the project. In the appoval center, the project manager can go to history, status updates, select the task update(s) and publish. Them it should be visible in the project.

    Note that the PM can create auto approval rules where he can configure automatic publishing for status update approvals.

    Hope this helps,
