Team member task status update RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have come across an issue (??) that I not seen before and would like to know if this is the way it should work.

    Case 1

    A task within a project schedule has a resource assignment

    The task has not started

    The resource needs to change the start date of the task

    Uses “My Tasks” changes the start date and submits the change

    The PM previews the change and see that the start date did not change but the finish date moved nothing else changes

    This is not what you would expect.

    Case 2

    A task within a project schedule has a resource assignment

    The task has not started

    The resource needs to change the start date of the task

    Uses “My Tasks” changes the actual start date and submits the change

    The PM previews the change and see that the start date did move out

    This is what you would expect

    Case 3 (build on case 2)

    The resource needs to move the start date out one more time

    Uses “My Tasks” changes the start date or actual start date, makes no difference in result, and submits the change

    The PM previews the change and see that the start date did not change but the finish date moved out nothing else changes

    Is this normal functionality?

    The bigger question is should a team member change the start or finish date of a task?

  • Hello SharkTracker

    Team Member is not allowed to change the start or Finish date of the Task but they can change it for assignement which is assigned to them.

    If the assignment changed date is within  the Task start & Finish you wont see any changes for task but if you change the assignement start before task is starting then you will see the task start is getting change and same logic goes with finish date.
