Task updation PWA against the planned time RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I am using Project Online. I am assigned by some work by my Project Manager(Project Owner). On the right sheet i can see my planned work the problem is - the moment i am entering my actual against those planned ones, my planned work getting changed. My planned work is coming same as of actuals.

    Can anyone please help me to understand the scenario completely? Why it is happening?

  • Hi Abbas Khan,

    As you noticed, the planned work is indeed meant to be overwritten by the actual work once you save and/or send your timesheet (as far as I tested, it is not updated directly when you enter actuals).

    The idea behind this is that at a certain time, the planned work is actually what is being done. If you want to keep track of what has been planned initially, then the baseline feature is intended to take a snapshot of the project plan for tracking the progress.

    But it will be applied to the project plan only once approved and published by the project manager.

    Hope this helps,
