Status responses in Project Server 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • In project 2010,  I assign tasks to resources will I receive the status responses by default?  And if I no longer want to receive the status responses, if there a way to make someone else receive the status responses by default? Would this be changing the status manager role?

  •  Hi there,

    By default Status report is turned off. User have to specifically configure from whom he\she would like to receive status report

    In Project Server 2010, the system designates the creator of the project as the Status Manager for every task, and the Status Manager is the person who receives and approves task updates from team members in that project.  If you were the user who created the project, then you are already the Status Manager for every task.  If someone else created the project for you and then you took over the project, then that other person is the Status Manager for every task.

    To determine this, display the Gantt Chart view, right-click on the Duration column header, select the Insert Column item on the shortcut menu, and then select the Status Manager field on the list of available task fields.  Do you see your name listed on every regular task in the Status Manager column?  If so, when you assign tasks to team members, the status updates will be sent to you automatically.  If you do not see your name on every regular task in the Status Manager column, select your name on the first task in this column, and then copy your name to every other task in the project.  You will then need to save and publish the project.

    If you no longer want to be the Status Manager, another project manager must open the project and set him/herself as the Status Manager for every task.  He/she will then need to save and publish the project.

    Hope this helps.

  • thanks for answering, but this isn't totally true...you can specify who receives the status report, but I think the status manager receives the response by default.

    I'll do some more researching...thanks again.
