Resource entered task data is modified by project - how can I stop this happening RRS feed

  • Question

  • If I schedule a task on a project for 5 hours of work over 3 days for a resource (myself) then this appears in my task list

    If I record a task update saying I actually did 10 hours of work over those 3 days (-see image) why does project change that when I open the plan. It is essential that project does not alter the data resources enter: if 10 hours over 3 days is entered; project should not change that to 10 hours over 6 days. How can I stop project changing approved data!

    Trying to stop the swap to Salesforce - but the errors keep a coming

  • Hi

    at least the 10h are still there, so it looks not too bad :-)

    It might be that the task is set to task type "Fixed Duration". This could lead to the task still having a 6d duration.

    Could you check that?

    Also have a look into the task usage view to check if the 10h are spread across 3 or the whole 6 days.
