  • Hi Kirtesh,

    Project Server 2010 is different regarding timesheet than it was in 2003. I can't remember 2003 exactly, so I am not able to tell you exactly what to find where.

    Project Server 2010 has two pages for time reporting - for different purposes. But your prject server administrator can link them.

    • Users can enter time in Timesheets. Timesheets are sent to Timesheet Manager as defined on resource level. Timesheet Manager is the resource manager in most cases. This time is not reflected in project plan with default settings. Moreover, timesheets will only display tasks started in the past or current week, so you will not see them there. But you can add by using Add button.
    • Users can enter stats updates in Tasks. These updates will be sent to project manager for approval and you can see it in project as progress. Task page displays also tasks starting in near future (your project server administrator can define what is "near" in your company.
    • You can link timesheet updates and status updates for project by enabling Single Entry Mode (SEM) in Server Settings - Timesheet Settings and Defaults

    Does that help?

  • Kirtesh --
    To enter time in the Timesheet for a task scheduled in the future, you must first add the task to your Timesheet.  In the Tasks section of the Timesheet ribbon, click the Insert Row button and select the Insert Task item on the menu.  In the Add an Existing Task dialog, click the Project pick list and select the name of the project with the future task.  In the list of tasks in the middle of the dialog, select the future task in question and then click the OK button.  This will add the future task to your current Timesheet so that you can enter time against it.  Hope this helps.
